Had a blast yesterday at a hummer garden that the president of a local photo club has. He was returning the favor of my having him over to get images of the hummer nest. I just had to make my self leave. I don't see how he hasn't gone through his 200K shutter counts.

Neither can I... these are magnificent captures!

Heart warming tales, gents. Wish it were the same for me, but alas, it is what it is. I'm from small town/country side Wisconsin, and am not afraid of bugs/mud/critters... she's a city girl, that stuff just isn't her thing.

To my wife's credit, she doesn't suffer from GAS. I'm regularly impressed by her iPhone photos and the creativity she employs, but she shoots completely different subjects than me (mostly for her business/website). Says she doesn't need a DSLR, and I agree with her. Sometimes though, when she does take up my camera to make photos, they turn out pretty awesome. Same story as yours, Jim: her and I get completely different results shooting the same subjects, it's really interesting to see what she comes up with.

I met may wife here in the sticks, she was born here. I'm the non local lol although I have lived here all but a few years of my life.

A first for me. It's the first I've ever seen so to have it in my backyard is special. Very skittish and only got one sharp(ish) shot out of 5 but I've saved a couple more anyway in case it's another 4 yrs before I see one :lol:

May I suggest - get your wife involved into photography. I did, and now when we go shooting to the Everglades it is her who wants to stay there longer.

A few years ago, I bought my wife an SL1 for our anniversary. She caught the bug quite quickly. We spend hours together out in various nature preserves. A fun time is had by all.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Wondering about this morning's shots as to why I missed so many? Looking at the image below with a shutter speed of 1/3200 (the sun came out just as I took the shot) nothing at all is sharp in the image and I had a few more similar but with slower shutter speeds that i put down to user error. Then I noticed this shutter speed and thought, "what's going on here? fast enough shutter and not front or back focus but all OOF? All stationary subjects?"

Now I notice that somehow I've knocked IS to mode 2 instead of 1. How, I don't know, as I have a camo cover on the lens with a rigid clear plastic window where the controls are but it's happened anyway! :oops: So would that really make that much difference? It appears so because I've just taken a few more shots that came out fine. This is the one with IS mode 2 with nothing sharp and lack of detail

It is expecting to pan side to side so maybe. Next time I shoot with it I'll try it on a static object set to 2. I know I have shot BIF and forgot to set it to 2 and did OK. I have never done a series of controlled tests for that.
