I like to see a shot of a chick.

OK Mike, just for you here are a couple of cute chick shots.:-)

A Lady passing by at the time, told me that her husband believed these were approx. 3-4 days old.

Cheers

Dennis

Nice images of the chicks, very cute.
The bokeh from this lens is interesting, too. They seem to have concentric rings, that look like an Airy disk.

These are really good shots, Dennis...so cute! But when I said I wanted to see cute chick shots, I was referring to women.:-P :p:lol:

Yes - the source of these diffraction patterns are drops of (out of focus) dew reflecting the Sun and they act like point sources of light. In some of these photos I have seen quite colourful examples.

Here is a full res 1600x1200 crop from the centre of one of the frames in the series.

You get the same effect with a telescope when you slightly defocus it, particularly on bright stars.

Cheers

Dennis

Fantastic close-up shot, Dennis! And I like the colorful, blurred background!

keeping up with the Plovers - Masked Lapwing (Spur-winged Plover) - Vanellus Miles
This was well and truly en garde today with two little plovers in toe. And this one was serious about attacking with vengeance. Not wanting to upset them I just retreated.
The spur is visible in its right wing
