  2. What's with all the cropping noise and sever lack of detail? You gotta
    learn to zoom with your feet! You really gotta!!!

  3. Awesome shot of a woodpecker. Looks like a young one. Great detail
    on his feathers. Colors are very true and I like how he's looking
    right at you. Lovely work Bret!

    It will be interesting when you guys start making images that have
    less to do with "equipment fetishes" and more to do with interesting
    and meaningful photography. Sharpness, noise, bokeh, yellow sport
    cars, floating shoes, "best" equipment. Too many distractions.

    Nonsense, even shots that are of subject of little interest show what
    a given piece of gear can do under different conditions.

    What might be meaningful photographs to you might, and likely would,
    be boring to me. But a piece of great, camera or lens or what having
    you that either works or does not work for someone else tells me a

    In my mind the worthless photographer on this group are the ones
    willing to tell us all how it should be done and with what gear, but
    never show an image. BTW I might have missed it but do you have
    images to view?

    You're begging the question Scott. What you may or may not have missed
    of mine has nothing to do with my point. Some of the greatest photos
    in the world have been taken with the crudest of equipment while some
    of the worst or, more prevelant mediocre, have been pumped out with
    the aid of high-tech science. If you need the best of equipment to
    make your photo statement, that's fine. No need to be defensive, I'm
    only offering one point of view. Nothing to get uspset over, my
    opinion, like a pixel, is just one in a milion.

    Great picture Brett. I love all woodpeckers, and it is very, very seldom
    that one sees a photo of any species with its tongue sticking out.

    That's because you gotta be quick. Hummers and herons are the only
    other birds I've photographed with tongues sticking out. Do you think
    they're mocking me?

    A vet friend of mine was at our house new years eve and
    was telling us about wood pecker tongues. The end is
    hard almost barbed and very long up to 5 or 6 inches for a
    harry woodpecker.

    Over the holidays a female Pileated woodpecker has discovered
    suet feeders in our yard. While she has been around she has
    been doing tree maintenance :)

    Do you think
    Do you stick your tongue out at the bird before taking the photo?
