    It's been 2 1/2 months since the last birdy thread was posted. Florida is a bit too hot for this old man to get out and shoot much in high summer. However, today I had a visitor. A little blue heron was feeding on my front lawn. That seemed a tad unusual. There was also a flock of white ibis. This time of year the ibis begin to gather in larger and larger flocks preparing for their winter migration. I got a face shot of this youngster. Their eyes are cool Several weeks ago I saw a family of Florida...

    A new filming technique has captured the incredible abilities of fighter jets in stunning detail. The footage, from California-based Blue Sky Aerial, shows Gripen fighter jets flying over Sweden. In what looks like a computer animation, the multirole fighters manoeuvre into rolls and send out a series of flares at speeds of 345mph. The video was captured using BlueSky's GSS 520 5 axis system, which can work at speeds of up to 300 knots per hour. The cameraman was riding in the back of a Saab 105 and filming the Saab JAS 39 Gripen fighter jet cruising over the icy...

This is likely their time using this nest as the rotting pine sways precariously in even the slightest breeze. At any rate, I thought about you. Hope you are well and able to get out. Enjoy!

    The P900 is a bridge camera. I wasn’t familiar with the term until this week, but it makes perfect sense — it’s a bridge between the pocket camera & a full-blown DSLR. The P900 is an all-in-one; it does not have interchangeable lenses. But the lens it has is a doozey. The P900 is in a subcategory of cameras called super zooms.. The Nikkor ED VR (vibration reduction) lens is sharp at the lower end of the range and not too shabby at the high end. The autofocus speed is very fast. I found the shutter lag (the time between...

    Bored Panda.com ^ | 5/4/2015 | Dainius
    Clownville, a photo series featuring grotesque portraits of terrifying clowns, is the photographic nightmare of French-born photographer Eolo Perfido. Perfido says he was inspired by silent film stars like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, who were forced to exaggerate their emotions because they were unable to speak. Modern clowns first appeared in the late 18th century and were associated with circuses and comedy. The word itself comes from a Scandinavian linguistic root meaning “clumsy, boorish fellow.” This is why Perfido’s photography is so shocking—he’s transformed something funny and joyful into a vulgar terror. Eolo Perfido now lives in Italy. His...

Scientists now have a new tool to take movies of such superfast movement in a single shot. Researchers from Japan have developed a new high-speed camera that can record events at a rate of more than 1-trillion-frames-per-second. That speed is more than one thousand times faster than conventional high-speed cameras. Called STAMP, for Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography, the new camera technology "holds great promise for studying a...

Basically, their bodies make their own beer. “In less than a second, he was on me, and strongly hit me like a rugby player. With the shock, I felt all his power and weight on my body," Courteau told Caters News Agency.
