Say "thread-waisted wasp" out-loud three times fast! (c'mon, just give it a go!)
Thread waisped wast?
I decided to have a little fun with Picasa today after I took this shot. I was in love with the beautiful clouds in the sky and thought I'd get patriotic since it's that time of year. I've spent a lot of time chatting with friends in hell lately, so I've learned to appreciate the good things we got goin' on here. Like how I can go out in public with my face showing and also not get put in prison for a public display of affection. It's the little things...
Okay, this'll be the last bee picture I post... perhaps.
They love my royal candle bush. 9 times out of 10 when I check there is a little furry bee smothering its face against the small delicate petals.
awesome, i gotta get out and take some pictures, weekends are tough during the summer though with so much other stuff going on.
I'll see your "flying insect" and raise you 50% on the "cuteness" factor. Just found these photos I took last October at the Butterfly Pavilion outside Denver.
Very well done.
Okay, so I'm gonna do it. Nobody can stop me (not even my wife!).
I'm buying this bad boy for my Canon 7D:
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Telephoto Zoom Lens
It's only going to cost an arm and a leg, and perhaps one testicle. I've got three of those, so I should be alright. If I end up getting this I'm back to shooting matches right-quick...
The anticipation is killing me.
I have lens envy.
Your lens... it's so.... big.
Picking it up Saturday morning. I'm too late for photog creds for the match on Saturday, but there's plenty more of those to be had.
Patience, Bozinho. Patience.
Very jealous, those L lenses are incredible, wish I had $2,500 to drop on a lens, lol.
...and I wish I had photog creds for the games!
Pay it forward. That's how I do.
Photog creds are easy to get... at least they used to be. I'll check on that and let you know because you don't have to be special (speyshal!) to get one. You just have to seem half-ass interested and they'll offer 'em up all day.
John Koluder used to be my go-to-guy but he left. Maybe someone else can tell me who the new media dude is...
Yeah, that would be awesome if I had something nicer than my cell phone camera to use. The one camera that was halfway decent is going to my husband in the divorce settlement... But hey, I'd love media credentials so maybe it's time I start writing again. Who knows? A girl can dream.
Wow--the fine folks from the FO provided me with credentials for the match on Saturday without hesitation. It's on like Donkey Kong suckas!
I've missed your game pics, Boz.
Can't wait to see what you get
The board is set, the pieces are moving.
Had a blast last night! So many familiar and friendly faces on the pitch!
Think I'll give myself a pass on this one (as far as producing pictures goes...). Sports photography is like riding a bike. You never forget how to do it, but that doesn't mean there aren't any kinks to work out. My timing last night was horrible.
I'll post some pics to my flickr account soon...but there's not a lot of them. I need to spend some time with my new baby (lens). Should have her figured out soon enough.
Boz, I have been to both Temple Square and the This Is The Place place, and I am pretty sure crickets go with Sea Gulls. I am also of the impression that the early Mormon settlers worshiped bees, though the tour guide was less clear about that.
This is a very interesting thread and I appreciate the photos, but what I have been hoping for is a recommendation for a reasonably priced "step up" digital camera. We have a small, five year old camera that more or less blurs 80% of what we use it for (the camera is here). We've never gotten a good shot of one of our kids performing in a choir or a play for example.
Now we're getting ready for a trip to the Wallowa Mountains and Lake Wallowa in NE Oregon. I'd like to be able to take some nice shots. Anything you can share would be welcome.
I've had my Canon t2i for about 5 months now and have been very happy with it. As DSLR's go there are lots of opinions on "entry level," from my research before I bought the camera the t2i got good reviews as a somewhat entry level DSLR. My whole setup with the t2i, 50 mm f1.8 prime lens, 55-250mm zoom lens and memory card was ~$750. You could probably find a used setup similar on ebay or a camera site for a little cheaper.
Right now I'm looking at an ultra wide angle lens for my camera, going to my cabin in central idaho in a month or so and want something better for the landscapes and trying out some star trails. Looking at a $400-600 investment I really don't have the money for right now. Damn expensive these camera lenses.
I agree with UP. Get into a DSLR, even at the lowest level and you'll be pleased.
The ability to manage the settings to your liking depending on the situation (outdoor, indoor, low light, no flash, still photo, action shots), or to just use some of the built-in automatic features will help in situations where lighting is poor or dimmed for ambiance.
You just cannot go wrong with a DSLR. I started with a Rebel xti to help out RSLFM.com, and then after a few years I moved up to the 7D. There are major differences between them, but I'll always love my Rebel. I bring it with me to games if I need a close up shot. I use my 7D for everything else.
I tend to subconsciously frame everything I look at, so adding a device that helps me capture some of those moments has really been an amazing thing for me. I love photography now, thanks to my DSLR's. (this sounds like an infomercial... but wait, there's more!)
The memories you capture will always be remembered. The price tag of the camera/lens will not.
By the by, I picked up our DSLR a few years back (the original Canon Rebel, but sufficient for our needs) for a smooth $200 on KSL Classifieds or Craigslist.
