Pic of Birds

Post by LDUBS » 11 Jul 2019, 23:02

Took a pic of some birds with my iPhone. Not sure why other than they were not too happy about parting so I could troll through. Slow day I guess. I think these are grebes.

That's a lot of birds in one area!

I love bird photography (and bird watching). My friends call me a nerd or a dad but whenever I take them bird watching they always have a great time...

I need a better lens but these are some shots I've gotten. (lenses are sooo expensive!)

The bald eagle was very far for my lens, and I was new to photo editing. I should really re-edit this photo. The vignette is way too much imo.

Film? What is film? :LOL2: :LOL2:

Seriously film used to be readily available everywhere. Now I suppose it is either a specialty shop or online. Don't suppose there are many photo labs left either.


Enwez, both those images are terrific.


Pssst: I heard of a guy that hangs out behind the bowling alley has some 400 ASA Kodachrome. (just joshin :LOL2: )

I like that slogan on your website: "Hunt - Fish - Work - Repeat"

Are you using a digital or film camera?

I get that lenses are expensive, but when I went digital I bought many lenses off Craig's list. There are photog buffs that are constantly upgrading their bodies and lenses at fantastic "get rid of it" prices.

A good lens is worth whatever it costs.
