What is that 'string' like coming out from the SUCKER ???
Norm refers to it as "slime." Djb says, it's "Milt." (am I allowed to say "sperm?")

Djb is correct, it's spawning season for Suckers and that is exactly what the this sucker of a scuker is doing...

Dave, so it's called milt???!!! i never heard that term before. i wasn't sure if i could use "sperm" so i just left one guessing when i mentioned it was spawning season. anyway, whatever we cal it or whatever it is, they are awesome shots!!!

Norm, in order to get that perfect exposure with only a sky background, are you using exposure compensation (EC) and if so, how much?? Today i had opportunities plus for flight shots and a sitting high in a tree a green heron. Well, they are pretty much wasted due to being so dark. i have EC set at +1/3 and wanted to increase it but, stupid me, i forgot how until i got to work and read the manual. so 5 great blue herons, 1 green heron, 1 hawk, a bunch of tree swallows and a pair of wood ducks are pretty much wastebasket material. I know one thing is that most of the shots were from quite a distance and even with spot metering it took more of the sky into play than the small subject. i'll ty to get the most out of what i have and maybe post later.

:blah: Yes, "Milt," and I believe you can find it in a dictionary...


1. Fish sperm, including the seminal fluid.
2. The reproductive glands of male fishes when filled with this fluid.


http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=milt

However, sad to say these images taken by Norm are TOTALLY ruined by his:

a. Calling a Sucker a "Carp."
b. Calling milt "slime."

Yes, might as well toss em out... :?:

They're ruined beyond reapair.....


Dave (nomenclature fanatic)

PS. Milt and Roe, BOTH taste good. (Just don't think about where they come from - Rocky Mountain oysters anyone?)

Simply amazing, once again.
The bar is certainly set very high.

Cheers

Yes, and a real shame too...

Some of the best "bird capturing fish" images I have ever seen ruined by faulty captions...

When will they learn?:shock:

In fact, I've disqualifieed every image in the topic, except for some guy named Dave....:?

Were you on the ground when you took these? On a hilltop? Up a big tree? I could believe you took them while paragliding!
