I was able to clone tissue from a wild sheep’s head or hen of the woods. That mushroom was loaded with bacteria and had no normal pigmentation just yellow. This photo is from one of the first plates. We were using the black lights in my office for something else and noticed the plate having that property. I think it way be that bacteria fluorescing green and yellow. No newer plates, second third or fourth have this presences.

That heron is bad-ass. In the first pictures I thought there was no way it would eat that whole thing. Boy was I wrong!

I just took a look, that’s a pretty slick setup. Have you gotten a chance to try it out yet? Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Congrats, Pharmer :)  You must have been a very good boy this year! 

 

I've been playing with the idea of getting a drone for a while, but really I don't know anything about them.  The nice ones aren't cheap, and I worry that I would screw it up.

 

I look forward to seeing your pics, and hearing about your experiences with it.

I only have experience with some very inexpensive drones, but from the little I know, the drones are pretty easy to control.

You could get some incredible pics Juthro, probably some up close and personal shots of a moose.

I have not been a good boy this year but I did go back to work for a while :)

 

They're not hard to fly but there is some getting used to the sensitivity of the controls. The good news is the drone is very resilient. I crashed into an oak 25 feet up from the ground and neither the crash nor the hard landing did any more damage than needing to replace a single propeller blade set @  $7

 

Took the first pics with it today. Will put them here as soon as I get them PS'd

 

The still camera works pretty much the same as a DSLR in manual mode. Not a million options but I'm thinking enough to get the kind of RAW files I can play with in PS. It has a significantly upgraded color profile - that means there are like ten times more colors in the pallete the sensor can read and therefore exploit in PS. Not sure of the technicalities of how this works yet but really looking forward to super subtle color manipulation.

 

This thing is built for video which doesn't get me to hot and bothered but I have to admit it takes some pretty moving pictures

 

The only downside is that the lens on the camera is only 24 MM     It would be nice of DJI to make a swap-able lens arrangement. It would be nice to have 300 or 500 mm options to shoot wildlife etc.   To get close enough to an animal to take a decent pic the noise of the props has, so far, been making the animals very very nervous. I'm thinking birds will not tolerate it at all

I wonder how aggressively the bald eagles would react to it.

Lots of scary bird on drone action on Youtube :)

 

There's an eagle nest not too far from here. They've migrated south by now therefore won't be there to defend it so I want to get a pic of the inside of the nest pdq. Also know where a hawk's nest is.

Make use of the fact it's made for Video. Each individual frame is a picture. A 10 second video at 30fps gives you 300 images to pick the best one out of.

I've seen some of those videos, and I've also seen first hand how aggressive an eagle can be.  That is what scares me from making that kind of financial commitment for a top end drone.   I think they are cool as hell, but I can just picture an eagle knocking it out of the sky and into the lake while I was still learning how to make the thing work.

 

I can also picture a half a dozen places I already know that I would love to use that kind of tool to get a different perspective in the pictures.  I really look forward to seeing what you're willing to share.

Herons always freaked me out growing up in the swamps of Florida. Those and Anhinga's, some birds just extrude dinosaur energy.
