Cats are cool. I also have a dislike of dogs, they can be scary, as can be geese :p.

There i saw a frog in the water and i "shot" him.
Hope you like it.

i still haven't ID-ed this spider yet, but i'll get out the field guide tonight.
i've ruled out wolf or brown recluse...this one is closer to a wolf.
she had a pretty big egg sac with her, so she wasn't moving around a lot.

nordboy really liked her too...

We have lots of spiders like that here.
I think it's a wolf.

i could have done without seeing that spider this morning...shivers. Thanks Nordy, your kid has more ball$ than i do when it comes to spiders.

admedia
08-29-2005, 09:56 AM
yea, young kids for the most part don't have any fear like we do when it comes to things like spiders and snakes... usually they will go right up to things and try and touch them.

nordberg
08-29-2005, 10:07 AM
lol lefty - i pretty much had to tell him not to touch it.
he loves bugs, spiders, snakes and all that.

addy - my first thought was that it's a wolf too...
they come in many different patterns, i just haven't been able to look it up yet.

admedia

Dude, there was a wolf spider in my garage one time, a big one. You know they jump too, all of the sudden the can leap like 10 feet :yikes:

anyway back to my garage, I got a hockey stick and started smashing it... as I smashed it exploded into thousands of tiny spiders, very strange.... like that old Tron video game. The hockey stick was no longer of use, so I grabbed some insecticide and started spraying them down.

I guess once that egg hatches, they carry the young around on their back. I am almost certain it's a Wolf, but let me know if you learn differently.

great thred so far, some great "gobble" action from skate on that turkey thing!!

Love the frog too, and the re-appearence of robbs ducks are very welcome in my book.

... looks like a lot of the guys here are more in touch with their feminine side than Mr Willy gave credit for.

I have a rabbit that lives in my house (i think a rabbit in a hutch can be a bit cruel)
I will try and get a good shot of him later on.

There have been some great photos posted here (keep em coming!)...but i was particularly talking about the stereotype that men don't care for cats, not all animals. ;)

Shooting animals (with a camera) can be a tough challenge for photographers and should be practiced when possible.

nordberg
09-24-2005, 05:54 PM

actually, probably underexposed, but over compensated for in pshop by adjusting levels.

i used a 70-300 lens, flash fired. i was no more than 3 feet away from the little guy.

the hardest part is finding a squirrel that doesn't run away.

Lovely shots skate. Which 70-300 do you have. Looks like you have a touch of chromatic aberration :eek: Its hardly noticable though :p

I've read a few articles on chromatic aberration in the past but never fully understood the concept.

In the simplest explanation; lenses work by bending any light that does not hit them at right angles to the surface, this is how they focus an image to a smaller area (sensor or film). Different colours bend different amounts causing some to not be as in focus and/or be in focus but shifted on the sensor or film. This causes slight errors where there are changes in colour - like colour "leaking" across.

Got no idea why it's often purple though - possibly something to do with it being close to blue? Blue light bends a lot compared to other colours.

skate342
01-08-2006, 01:34 PM
Thanks a_slosh.
ctanter, if you were referring to the purple line on the first photo, it's not chromatic aberration, it's a twig that was in front of the squirrel. :D

ctranter
01-08-2006, 05:39 PM
skate - nono. Around the edges of the berries there is a faint purple edging that is fairly classic of C.A., maybe its just me though... :p I shouldnt have mentioned it lol, as i said its hardly noticeable (if there at all)

skate342
01-08-2006, 09:44 PM
