Just a random gopro on the feeder morning

This same feeder a bear took to the ground then pooped beside the house a night ago... :lol: :p:-D:oops:

Thanks Jeff. Fascinating, a sight and sound show.
You've got plenty of vegetation around so expect a haven for wildlife. Including bears!
Much appreciated thanks.

I guess this must be a Chaffinch of the race Fringilla coelebs maderensis. Very nice!

I remember when I used to post to this thread.......-?

The dog days of summer had made for very little activity, but some fall migrants are slowly starting to trickle in, so hopefully i'll be back for fall and winter

At this moment I think I could put up with the M5 for cougar or lynx but if it was, say, white tailed eagles or peregrines or or or ... I'd be straight out to get another 7DII :)

taken with M5, as were the last few I've posted.

M5 is $949.99 and the 7DII is $1999.99 here...

I could use a good shooting 7DII  :p:oops: It is the boring choice... The have already... way to go.

Well Jeff, at the moment I too shoot everything with natural light, but one of these days I might put together one of those high-falutin' strobe setups and really help the hummers shine ;-)a
