Be careful guys I think young Gabriel has the winning idea and is just toying with us. I'm willing to bet that he has his entry completed and is just waiting to upload it.....it's in there Gabriel, in that grey matter.

Relax my friend lay back and let that youthful imagination of yours roam.....your trying too hard just let it flow.

Stay with it Gabriel you can do it, we're all counting on ya.

Haha. Maybe that is how I got the idea! lol.

My UV filter made by B+W that I ordered from b&h friday arrived this morning. Great condition, the only thing was that the lens has spots on it. Just some dust spots, but still annoying. Then I realized that I don't have a lens cleaner! lol! So I guess that I need to order one of those now, or just head down to Ritz camera store...

Maybe today I'll get something.

Finally got 'em

After running around all over the northeast Tennessee mountains for the past week, I had just about given up on one of my target species to include in my film. As luck would have it, a friend who was out birding in the mountains yesterday happened upon a small group in the Cherokee National Forest near Bristol, Tennessee. I was up driving to the site at the crack of dawn this morning and by 10:00 am I had my clips. Here is a still taken from the memory card of the Canon Optura 200mc of a Yellow Lady's Slipper Orchid.

Wow, that is awesome Rick! Good to hear it!

I can't wait to see it in action! Sounds like today will be the day for me too.

Best of luck everyone!

The "Isn't that cute" factor

My footage didn't come out as well as I thought once I got it captured. But the subject is still pretty good. And by the time I shrink it down to the challenge frame size, it may be OK.

I went for the "cute" factor. Meet Mom and Baby White-Cheeked Gibbon.

I would say you got the "Cute factor" as you put it. :D

I can't wait to see your puffins. Can you send a few over here - we've only seen five this year.

I have never seen one of those ("puffin?") before... I can't wait to see it in action. :-)

I still have yet to have any luck with getting something on video....
