Wow. What is that? Tuna?
I don't know too much about salt water fish.
Im more of a fresh water ID guy myself.

Yes a yellow fin :). The shark followed up the last one we caught. Even bit it. But we still got it on board before the shark took it :). Had a great day we caught 7 and landed 4.

This little Titmouse flew into my window. It was dazed and confused, so I set it on this piece of wood to recover. It stayed for about a half hour and then flew off.

I've always loved these garden spiders. I like how their markings look like a face.

Saw this garter snake in the path while on a dog walk.

My neighbor's chicken isn't wild, it just thinks it is.
Your neighbors chicken might be dinner for that snake if he isn’t careful

A little less exciting than what's been posted here; no sharks, tuna or mutant spiders... but what I have here is a ladybird infestation in my bedroom window, and it's the time of year when the ladybirds roam. As long as they pay the rent, they're very welcome guests.

Edit: there's a spider living among them, however he/she is hiding at the moment. I think I know where.

Saw this while dropping crab pots, sadly it took a little to long too get my camera on.

There are a ton of these up here, but this one was almost 3 foot across (wider than my crab pot)

This is my limit to take such pictures as it was already very dark at that moment. High Iso and low shutter speed are required.

Went for a hike today with my family...our first free Saturday for months. It was a beautiful fall day in Northern Illinois and the colors are just in the early stages.

Photos from a safari I went on in Tanzania. I was surprised to see lion cubs so young eating meat - the youngest one on the far left was also eating.

Have you gotten into the focus stacking aspect of macro? I've got a 105mm Sigma "macro" lens but the effort I perceive is needed to produce good images keeps me from really trying it.

I have not stacked in a rather long time. I only do it when I use a microscope objective or at times the Canon MPE 64 lens mounted to the camera. The switch to 64 bit OS on my mac has rendered my programs useless. The objective is a 10:1 mounted on extension tubes when I need more magnification. I can almost get to the cellular level.



This is a shot of the reproductive organs of a viola flower. If memory serves there are 34 photos in this shot. I used a macro rail mounted to a work station I built.

My go to macro lens is a non IS Sigma 150mm. It handholds quite well with the twin head Canon flash. The above shots were taken with that rig handheld.

Shots of my macro setups.

Thanks, that's a nice setup you built. One of the youtube photogs I've been following did some vids during the pandemic on product photography and some of the elements are similar. Lighting can be really tricky!

Nice shots! I spent a couple days in HK nearly 40 years ago and as a visiting young sailor picnic places weren't high on the list of things to see or do. ;)

More critters. The snapper is said to be around 60 years old and is huge.

Spotted a flock of wild turkeys along the highway the other day on the way home from work. For some reason they like to hang out along the shoulder of the road.

This morning, it was a fox trotting across the highway in the rain.

And now it is rifle season for deer. Expect to spot more wildlife out and about looking for new hiding spots.
 

Ouse

This morning, it was a fix trotting across the highway in the rain.
Those darn fixes! Always fixing stuff.

Some pics from earlier this year

Had gotten into photography Jan of this year and stopped around March. Feeling like I'll probably get back into it soon, I prefer taking winter photos for some reason.

A few months ago a bobcat walked right in front of me crossing the street while I was walking and we were both pretty unfazed by eachother

Ouse

Found Sonic asleep on the way home today
...and he's still there! I was walking home to find he hasn't changed position since yesterday. He wasn't moving like he originally was either. There are two possibilities: he has begun hibernation (albeit in an awkward place) or he has died. I tried relocating him, but he's too spiky to grab.

20211104_155442.jpg
I hoped Sonic would relocate during the night when hedgehogs are active.

Haven't been able to process photos these days. So I am reaching back in time a bit here.

1. Love in the spring. Taken at a local pond a couple towns over.

2. A honey bee and a bee mimic.

3. Two bees sharing their world.... Humans can learn a whole lot from the little ones.

4. A spring robin.

5. A little hover fly visiting me. It is sitting on my thumb.

Hoverflies are always fun.
Yeah, I am very fond of them. The fascinating thing is that as gentle as the adults are their babies are said to be voracious predators.

We had 5 deer walk through our backyard while we were sitting outside (we live in front of a large sod/cotton field). I wish I had taken a picture but I was afraid I would scare them off.
