OK, some of you folks have said that you enjoy seeing Patty's Mingo (and other) pictures. So instead of having them all over the place I decided to start this thread.

Other Mods and Administrators, If you think this is inappropriate please let me know and I will take it down.

Let's start off with the Photographer, Patty the Shutterbug!

Now on to the first picture. Here is a pic we got alongside a major Highway several years ago. He had just taken off from a branch about 50 feet off the highway.

Which kind of dangerous animal is that with the white shirt? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

I wonder if those claws are sharp <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/10/12 01:21 PM

You don't have to worry about the one with the shirt, he's to old and slow to do much damage. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/10/12 01:22 PM

My first two years I loaded bombs, rockets....etc. Basically anything that could be shot or dropped from an aircraft. Then my knees got hurt and for the next 18 years (except for 4 years in Japan for what I call my Secret Squirrel years) I worked in Airfield management, formally called Base Operations.

Hey whoever thinks making tomato juice isn't hard has never stood in front of a how stove in the middle of summer stirring cut up tomatoes and then the juice for close to an hour. And THAT is just the cooking! We're not even talking about the picking, washing or quartering.

And here is perhaps one of the greatest pictures ever taken. The picture went from the camera to the computer, with NO editing whatsoever. Patty didn't even know she had this good a picture of it until she was downloading to the computer. About 30 seconds later it was gone. It was taken in March of 2010.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/12/12 04:08 PM

I am seriously thinking about getting Patty a new camera for Christmas or her birthday (Jan 25th). She has been talking about Nikons. Right now her camera is a Canon EOS Xs with the 75-300mm lens.

I want to upgrade her to something better and I HOPE I can find something better (Camera and lens) for about $1000-1200 dollars. Most of her pics are between 20-300 feet, some of course farther and a few shorter.

What would be a good Camera, NIKON first and then Another Canon with lens recommendations?

If she has more than the one Canon lens, I recommend staying with Canon. Sell the old body, get a new one and continue the lens collection.

If she only has the one lens, sell both the lens and body and get a Nikon if that is what she is set on.

If the budget you mention, $1,000 to $1,200, is for a kit (body and lens), you cannot go wrong with a Nikon D7000. Check out a review here.

With a bit of searching, I just found a D7000, 18-105mm lens and tons of other goodies in a kit for $1,250. You can probably find it for less with just the lens and body. The 18-105mm lens will be a good starter lens as well since it has a wide zoom range. But, you give up a little on the aperture - 3.5 is the largest hole it'll make. There is also a kit with a 70-300mmm lens, which should make the transition less abrupt. It is probably the better one too, since she does a lot of nature photos.

The D90 is a small step down, but you can save a few pennies with it. I used to have one, and loved it. I got rid of it to change formats not because I had any issues with it.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/15/12 09:38 AM

Thank you MonsterDog. Yeah having a face to put with the posts does add something.

Thank you JJ. I had thought the D7000 was way out of our league.

She has the Canon EOS Xs and the standard 18(or28)mm to 55mm lens plus the 55-300mm for the Canon. She would keep it as a second (backup) camera.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/17/12 03:24 PM

I was going to get that or maybe even the Jumbo, but I found the 511 for a LOT less and it works for me,at least for now. Once Patty is able to get out and about again, I may let her have the 511 and probably get me the Jumbo.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/17/12 03:41 PM

Right now I have a military web belt set up with two one quart canteens. There is enough room between them for my 2 quart canteen If I want to carry it too. I also have a camelback style 2 liter style water carrier but wouldn't want to carry that if I had the versapack. It I had (or get) the SS bottle, either the 40 or 64 ounce, it would go on the web belt and if I got the 64 it would replace both the 1 quart bottles.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/17/12 03:41 PM

You might want to check their gearslinger range, backpaks with diagonal strap so you don't have to take off to get into. And if you ask around here someone might have one they want to let go...
Posted By: SkunkHunter

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/17/12 03:43 PM

I've seen a couple gear slinger packs and just didn't care all that much for them. I thought at first I would love them, but I like the Murse concept better.
Posted By: elof_alv

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 08/17/12 03:49 PM

I switched to the bag for week days because the Kodiak was pretty much empty. But now I started to take food with me and the EDC bag is too small on some days
Plus with the gearslingers you can attach things to them, like the bottle carier, they all have one 'built in'. Or you can put a bladder in the back compartment...

Hey Randy, I love my Maxpedition Malaga. Its in the gear slinger series. It is my edc bag and I don't go any where without it. The only thing you have to get used to is learning over with a one strap bag. I'm a big guy and the one thing I did just order is the Janus extension pouch. not sure how its going to work yet.

And here is perhaps one of the greatest pictures ever taken. The picture went from the camera to the computer, with NO editing whatsoever.

If we ever have to boogie, this is where we plan on heading. It' close to 3/4 mile off a not so major road and if you don't see the "Lane" that leads to it you will never find it. Oh and the exit off the road can be camouflaged VERY easily.

About 12 miles away, 3-4 acres in water with a small cabin. The lake belongs to my brother-in-law.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 01/10/13 11:13 AM

OK, first a confession. We didn't get each other anything for our Anniversary or Christmas. And with Patty's birthday coming up in a couple weeks I got her something she has been wanting a LONG time. A NICE camera outfit. We got it Monday and can already tell a difference in her pictures. Just for those curious dogs, here is what she got.

Pentax K5 IIs DSLR with a Sigma 18-250mm Macro lens. It isn't a Cannon or Nikon, but I had an OLD Pentax SP500 for 30 years and it was an EXCELLENT camera. This one seems like it will carry on the tradition. I hope you like the Pictures.

Snow geese and some old fart just for perspective.

It was a completely overcast day, and the pictures were not as dark on the computer at home, but for some reason they appear darker here. I hope you enjoyed them because she REALLY enjoyed taking them. Oh BTW, the owl was about 30 feet away from us about 8-9 feet up in a tree.

And it's GREASER for the win! The picture was taken in daylight, cloudy overcast day. I held a LED Mag Light (184 lumen) spotlighting the center of it.

It is called a passion flower and they are actually a pretty flower.

Best I could tell from looking up pics of both, it's a bobcat. BUT I could be wrong to.
Posted By: rth548

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 10/31/13 12:44 PM

Based on what I looked up, it's probably a bobcat. Just the ears look more like a Lynx to me.
Posted By: rth548

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 10/31/13 12:45 PM

But the maps show the Lynx to be more northern, very little south of the Canadian border.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 10/31/13 12:46 PM

I kinda that as well, but then I noticed the "Tufts" on the ears are a lot larger on the Lynx.

Re: Patty the Shutterbug - 04/04/14 07:19 PM

It HAD to happen sooner or later.

The feral swine problem at Mingo has taken an unexpected twist. While conducting fisheries surveys, the staff at Mingo collected multiple examples of what are believed to be a hybrid between carp and swine. These fish were heard making a squealing noise as they wallowed in the shallows. After the sampling effort was completed, the staff took an opportunity to cook one of the hybrids. The report was that it tasted like bacon.

We can already tell a difference between this one and her old outfit. All I need to get her now is a good Macro lens. The lens on her old outfit (Pentax K5 IIs) is a Sigma 18-250 macro, but a dedicated lens for flowers and stuff would really be nice.

Have you ever thought about having Patty publish some of these pictures

If they do, I wonder if something like a calendar with Patty's photos could be an option

I think many of her photos are of professional quality

OK, let's see what 450 miles will do for the critter cam. All the following pictures (until I state otherwise) were all taken at Cades Cove, 25 miles from Pigeon Forge Tennessee.

These are not even close to the amount of pictures Patty took, just some random shots I posted up. As she sends more I will post more of them. I hope Y'all enjoy the tour!

Patty ALMOST always takes hers with her. Now we just got to find her a good Macro lens. Pentax will work of course, but I really want that SIGMA 105mm Macro for her. UNFORTUNATELY they say they don't have any plans on making it for the Pentax mount. It's about a 62mm Objective where the Pentax is 49mm.

Big Springs state park in Van Buren Missouri.

At an average daily flow of 286 million gallons of water, Big Spring is an awesome sight and a geologic wonder. Underground passages carry water from as far as 45 miles away to emerge at the spring. Studies have shown that the water is carrying a load of dissolved limestone equivalent to 70 tons a day! This dissolved rock gives the spring its color and is also carving out a huge conduit underground. Should the spring ever go dry, a huge cave will be the result.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of Patty's pictures of Cades Cove and the animals in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

She's not real happy with the pictures, started out in the automatic mode due to lighting and the animals moving. Her pics were pretty grainy. She then started experimenting using the all manual mode and her pics improved (not as grainy) but she still isn't happy with them. Oh well, there's always next time! smile
