    Здравствуйте,Галина, спасибо за комментарий)) (к фотографии с "интересным углом съёмки" ;) ) Нет, у меня на фотоаппарате поварачивающегося экранчика нет, так что, чтобы снять с такого ракурса пришлось повалятся на травке:-))Но у этого тоже есть свои плюсы......
    А почему EXIF зактрыт я не знаю.., и, честно говоря, даже не знаю, где он тут... Зарегистрировалась на сайте недавно и пока не очень освоилась здесь..

    The Coyote photo is one of my proudest and one of the first I took with the 70-200mm lens. His family lives near my old work place, and I had some long distance shots of them, but I wanted a close up. One of my employees brought in a cassette tape of an injured rabbit (hunters use them) and he came running in looking for an easy meal. He was there less than 30 seconds, before he realized he had been tricked, and he disappeared again.

    I think next week I'm going back to the old work place to work on the 2010 Cobra Mustang, and I'll have my camera ready.

    YIS,

    I had a friend hold the two Garter snakes for me and the background was a very dark wood cabin. I did blacken the background with the Paint Tool to make them stand out even more though. They were only about the size of pencils. I went to the same meadow last month at camp and found a few more Garter snakes while I taking a break from photographing the Scout Leader training.

    The Opossum (pos-sum) and Raccoon photos were both taken at Oak Openings Preserve. It is one of the few remaining Oak Savannahs in the USA. The opossum just wandered by while I was resting on a log. Once he noticed me, he froze, and I was able to take many close photos. I was actually trying to photograph deer that day, but they weren't being cooperative.

    The raccoon did see me, but he didn't care. He was high up in a tree and racoons are pretty cheeky anyway. I've had to shooo them out of camp before, and sometime they won't even run.

    Thanks for the comment on the flamingo. He was at the Louisville zoo and I think I was using the 100-400mm lens. I might have also added some magenta color to the photo when I was editing in PhotoShop. The color does seem very rich.

    Thank-you for explaining the URL problem. I had that problem with a few more albums, but thanks to your suggestion I was able to fix them. I changed the URL to the smaller Cross Winds Marsh album, and then I moved the photos to the larger Cross Winds Marsh album after I could see them again.. There is only one Cross Winds Marsh album now and I hope I didn't goof up any of your links. Its nice to have help from halfway around the world.

    Галина - спасибо что зашли к нам. В Yellowstone, наверное, можно ездить годами, и все ходить по новым местам. Впрочем мы, в основном, держались проторенных туристских дорог. За исключением Bunsen Peak и Lone Star. Я уже готов съездить туда опять. Останавливает одно: а сколько еще мест, где не были совсем.

    Дело не в секрете, а в эстетике: меня почему-то раздражает эта надпись справа от фотографии. Чем меньше посторонних текстов вокруг, тем лучше. Я снимаю Canon Rebel XTi с Tamron 28-200 (во что он там с цифровой камерой превращается). Как правило, на program или aperture priority. Валя снимает Panasonic DSC-LZ2, очень качественный компакт.

    Заходите еще! Олег

    Галина, у тебя просто замечательные фотографии (ссылку дала мне Лена Макарова) и рассказала как вы замечательно отдыхали в Крыму несколько лет назад. Я послала тебе письмо на но только потом прочитала, что этот ящик spammed, откликнись, пожалуйста.
    Всего хорошего,
    Светлана

    Outstanding photos of the Marktown Historic District. They finished Spurce Avenue this past year and the home at 402 Park Street had been renovated on the interior and restored on the exterior. It was a $15,000 initial purchase price and an additional $15,000 to complete the work. Where can you get a solid masonary home by Howard Van Doren Shaw for $30,000 and be just 20 minutes from Chicago? Only in Marktown!

    Greetings, Thanks for viewing my albums.

    The eagle shot was taken at the Toledo, Ohio Zoo, and it had a very dark background. I played around with it in Photoshop to see what I could do with it. I basically selected the whole background and then used the "paint" feature to change the background.

    I can't remember which camera I used for the racoon shot. It might have been my Olympus C740 UZ, or possibly my Canon Rebel 300D. It was a long time ago.

    The wallaby photo was taken at Kentucky Downunder which is a park on Interstate 65 with an Australian theme. They have guided tours inside the pens and the baby wallaby decided to stick his head out of the pouch while we were on our tour. I was using a Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5 - 5.6 lens (professional grade).

    YIS,
