And now for something completely Different.
The most interesting Stone in the Graveyard reads George Stafford born in Ireland April 19. 1878 was killed by Theshing Machine in Kevin Watsons Barn Aug 10 1904 I am not sure on the first name as I was relying on the camera to help Me with that and I did not read it fully onsite, I hope You enjoy these almost all are HDR and all have had work done to them whether or not they are HDR and almost all are from My 40D with the 70-200 2.8 Canon lens mounted.
This post I am just letting the Images Speak to You whatever You want them to Say!!!
How are all of the Shutterbugs?
Speaking of Bugs
I was up on the Carden Plain on Monday I took a day off to go and get baked by the June sun My destination was the Carden Plain but I stopped by the Kirkfield liftlock as I had to drive under it to get there on the route I inadvertently chosen to get to the Carden,and was all over it I spent about two hours there, I was starting to melt up top I had been by there in colder parts of the year and never stopped or taken the time to go up top, but that is not the subject of this post, Dragonflys are I will never think of them in the same way again I had for some time though there were large dragonflys but never gotten close enough to confirm this thought till Monday when I turned the camera onto what I thought was a blue flower and was I in for an awakening, I was of the mind to run they looked that menacing in the viewfinder, or perhaps it was that large thing on the front of the camera, at an rate they would comfortably take up the whole hand that is how large these were, My thoughts of Dragonflys have been altered forevermore, I am sure they did not want to let Us know they were there so don't let to many people know that You know they exist.
It looks like these are Canada Darner Dragonflys a Male and a Female that seem to be doing what Males and Females sometimes do.

Hello To Everyone
I have sent My Sigma 70-200 2.8 out two times for the same reason the aperture is not functioning and this has taken four months and I have had enough of this so I went out to Henry's today and bought the Canon version of same 70-200 and I am Amazed once again especially with the lens I have been using in the interm a 70-300mm F/4-5.6 APO Macro and well it's not fun anymore regardless of the reviews. so now things other than the pocketbook are back as they should be as far as picture taking is concerned, now all I need is a teleconverter that's only a mere 500$ or so, it never ends it seems just one more item and things will be fine and well fooled again. now all I have to fight with is the 7D itself it needs to get in line with the lens so it seems some changes made in picture style need to get put back closer to were they were at factory default a few more shoots and We will get it tuned up.
I hope You Enjoy the posts taken with the new lens on the 7D
Seems the Bird was a bit off in Her His? forecast, plus a few more from the weekend Sunday to be exact in the Hall Tract!!! Oh!! and a Monday Balloon and the Bird Weather Synopsis about the botched Forecast.
Taken with a new toy a Pentax Optio with what they chose to call microscope mode a stand off is fixed on the front and there are six LEDs as a low budget ring light around the lens it is part of the camera and the images I posted are right of the camera I did nothing to them
