Out my back door friday a.m.

These are a hybrid of domesticated pet bunny and railway jack rabbits.
They seem to be fairly prolific around here, and are well used to being around people.
They don't color phase for the seasons, and are probably easy prey for predators during winter.
At about 6 feet. ISO 64, f5.6 and 1/250 sec with the Nikkor "P" 105 f2.5.

Image

Not sure what this is.
Could not see any purple, so it's probably a starling.
Very loud song, and quite hyper active.
They simply don't sit still.
About 60 yds at a coffee shop parking lot.
Considerable crop here~ edging on about 85-90%.
The 105 again at ISO 64, f8 and 1/2500 sec.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

i think i need to look out my back door in the morning , last time i looked there was snow on the ground and deer eating my ewes , the dog raised the alarm , they paid him no attention tho , but the wife and i enjoyed the sight till she realized they left piles of poop that the dog liked - now she wants me to cut back the ewes and do something to keep them out of the lawn , haw do you persuade 15 deer to stay in the neighbors lawns when they are hungry ?????????

I kind of like this.
Love the stark colors here, and the 200mm f4 nikkor a/i-s almost got complete focus.
ISO 200 and f8. I should have been using 400 with the heavy overcast. Shutter speed was about 1/125 sec.

A couple of views of Sturgeon Creek at high water.
The water is still coming up.
Crest on the Red R. is expected Sunday or so...

A shot of last night's blood moon.

ISO 1,250,000 1/90 sec at f8.
That ISO number is an actual setting on the D-810.
There are 4 higher settings, but they produce "banding" on the image.
Not so great for producing fine detail.
I'll get some more night stuff up later...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Nope- viewed from the city.
There was a lot of cloud cover here to the east and south east.
We would have done better with the photo's out of town.
