  1. This is about 3 minutes from my home. If the seller were to offer them at a realistic price and anyone here was interested I would be willing to check them out.

  3. Violent Conduct is listed as the second of the seven potential red card offenses. If the official had seen the foul by Tancredi it would have been an automatic redcard. Player ejection and Canada plays a man down for the rest of the game. Additionally the ejected player would not be able to play in the next game. Competitive players always push the envelope as far as what a particular group of officials will allow in each game. They play rough but this incident clearly deserves a red card.

  6. He doesn't smell too good, that's for sure.
  7. I'm guessing reaching toward the screen resulting in jammed fingers could become a common household injury.
  8. I like to celebrate the birth of our nation by blowing up little pieces of it.

  10. Awfully nice of the person that left it there.

  12. That's the lens I was using on a D80, it's the model with VR, the VR works very well. much better than expected. dtel, Yes it's the VR model. Santa brought me a D300s (my daughter gets my old D80) and I traded in my old 70 - 300 ED and a few other items and picked up this one, so it was almost a wash as far as cost. The difference between the two lenses is significant, so much sharper and faster focus. Although the new lens is a f4.5 vs f4 on the old one. The VR really works, I have it on my 18 - 200 as well and it is amazing to watch it work. But my guess is colter will accuse us of cheating because he brags about being so rock steady. Check it out, click on the photo a couple of times and enlarge it, the tree was about 20 feet away and this guy was about 30 feet up, (cropped and slightly sharpened):
  13. The funny thing is we see them almost every day. Does, fawns, bucks, individuals, or as many as a dozen at a time. We've had them come right up to our deck and also look into the windows of our house. If you are up at 2 am you'll see them curled up and sleeping in the middle of the yard, even at 10 below zero and in a couple feet of snow. They reek havoc on all types of gardens. In the spring they eat the tops off of our bearded iris and they'll do plenty of unwanted pruning to our tomato plants. Between the coyotes and the deer we could open a game preserve.
  14. I received a new Nikon 70 - 300 zoom lens yesterday and I have been itching to try it out. The weather today is perfect, about a foot and a half of snow on the ground and a bright sunny sky (finally). So I figure I'll go outside for a couple of hours and see what it'll do. Before I even leave my yard I take a look at our birdfeeder and there are a couple of Cardinals and a Red Bellied Woodpecker happily munching away. I take a couple of shots from about 40 feet away. They come out sharp as a tack with brilliant colors. I am loving this lens. As I am looking through the viewfinder waiting for the woodpecker to lift his head up, all the birds explode from the feeder and scatter all at once. I lower the camera from my eye thinking "What the hell? Did the neighbor let out his gd dog again?" Out of the corner of my eye I sense movement, just as an eight point buck streaks through my yard, perhaps 30 feet away and right in front of me. Of course I stood there with my mouth open having completely forgotten that I HAVE A CAMERA IN MY HAND! Like a dope I watched him leaping through the snow and into the woods at the edge of the property without even thinking to take a picture. A true face palm moment. Winchester21 - You sure are right about the corn (as well as a salt lick). Although it is against the law here in Illinois to feed deer. We are so overpopulated with them and the worry is about spreading Chronic Wasting Disease. The state arranges controlled culling of the herds at certain times of the year, outside of the regular hunting season. Which is really necessary, but it still gets protested by the usual collection of idiots that don't understand how much suffering the deer go through when they are overpopulated. A no deer photo:
