Gentle Persuasion Uploaded: 10/25/10 7:44 PM GMT

Image: Gentle Persuasion

I was returning from my Grandson's flag football game yesterday when I saw a scene I thought looked interesting. There was a grove of trees with their fall coloring, a field of green winter wheat and a clouded sky with sun rays fighting their way through. I stopped and got set to take the photo when this buggy with the two Amish boys popped up from over the rise. I was so surprised, I almost forgot to take a photo. I only got one. We traded greetings and they were gone. Enjoy.

Thanks Tick for commenting on my picture "Two Tone Dragon"
Sneaking up on these skittish little guys using a 100mm macro wasn't working for me. My camera setup for insects, frogs, and other pond stuff is the use of long focal length lenses, typically 400-600mm.

Thanks Tick for the comments on my picture "Bird Blind Blues"
I believe this bird to be an Indigo Bunting. The setup I used on this dreary day was a Canon 300mm 2.8 lens with a Canon 2.0x III extender giving me a very heavy 600mm setup that I attached to a monopod. Do to the lack of sunlight that day I set the Canon 5D III in aperture priority at an F-stop of 8.0 and an ISO of 3200. Even with an ISO of 3200 my shutter speed was only 320th of a second, less than half of what I would like it to be. On the bright side the birds didn't seem to mind the weather and the lighting was very even yielding several keepers besides this one.

For the camera buffs out there that are inquiring about the equipment I use this shot was taken with one of my favorite lens setups. The Canon 300mm F4L with a Canon 1.4x extender. The longer the lens the greater the working distance from the subject. No scare and no smell.
