    A bird in the hand

    He was still very much alive but won't last long out of the nest. I will let nature take its course as I will be out of town all next week and won't be around to try to nurse it along. Jerry

    A bird in the hand

    is worth two in the bush. Found this little guy on my lawn this afternoon as I was watering. A high percentage of baby birds don't make it for a number of reasons. Evidently he fell from the nest for whatever reason. Jerry

    It's no wonder I like to stay indoors

    This spider is an orb weaver and I had one hanging around in my garden tool shed for a couple months last fall. Got quite a few shots of it. Most spiders are quite harmless. Jerry

    Colorado

    Thanks all for commenting. Of the shots I got in Colorado the first one is my favorite and I nearly missed that one. My cousin walked off the trail into the creek and when I saw him raise his camera to take a shot I had to see what he was shooting and it's a good thing my curiosity was...

    Colorado

    Was on vacation in Colorado for a week walking the trails and enjoying the scenery. My D7000 has been in the shop for over a month so had to rely on the D80 for these. Wasn't near the wildfires thank goodness. Jerry

    Think I've got it

    Several days ago I had started a thread stating that it seems when I shoot macro with my D80 as opposed to my D7000 my settings need to be different to achieve the same exposure and was asking if the sensor on the D7000 was more sensitive. In asking the question I was thinking that ISO's should...

    Bad news - Good news

    Okay just got back from United Camera where the tech. showed me the broken shutter as well as the scratched sensor. The scratch is not terrible and the tech. even said I could get by with it if I post process my images. I do post process all my images but I wouldn't feel the least bit...

    Bad news - Good news

    Okay guys this is what I've decided to do. The call I got from them yesterday afternoon was late so I know they haven't done anything yet. According to their website their lobby opens at 8:a.m. so I will show up there at that time to tell them I've decided I want to take a look at the sensor...

    Bad news - Good news

    I wanted to take it to a local shop and United Camera was listed as an authorized Nikon repair shop so I assumed they had Nikon's blessing. The camera is not under warranty. But now I am definitely worried because upon further research I have read some complaints about this company that read...

    If they are not a reputable company they could scratch the sensor themselves and tell me the shutter blade did it and I'd never know the difference. Jerry

    Seriously do you believe I've been duped and the sensor is not scratched? I took it to United Camera and I'm hoping they are reputable. Jerry

A few things worked such as image review and I could access the menus but the the camera was non functional. Took it into the repair shop first thing Monday morning and was told it...

    Bad news - Good news

    Latest update on my D7000 in the repair shop with a bent shutter blade. Took the camera in one week ago and was immediately told it had a bent shutter blade but didn't know yet whether the sensor had been scratched or not. After waiting one full week I was hoping no news was good news. I was...
