Shed.

Had wanted to try some astrophotography, but there was too much light pollution (the next door neighbors were having a party). So instead pulled out my IR converted camera and took this. 20 sec exposure at f/5.6 and ISO 400. Hadn't had much success with the IR body at night, but the tungsten light from next door lit up the leaves nicely. Had to transiently turn the lights from the shed on to achieve focus as the ambient light was too dim for the autofocus to work with LV.

This is a quick capture, taken inside from behind a window, of a couple frisky lizards making great use of our deck. After the male was "finished", he hopped up onto one of our chairs and relaxed there for the remainder of the evening.

I happened to have had the right tool for the task at hand: D700 with 70-200 2.8 VRII mounted and 2.0 teleconverter attached.

This was also taken with the 70-200mm 2.8 and 2 x TC, but on a D750.

Here's another one from a rather large group of cows that watched me taking a picture of the moss.

No problem. There is usually a set of policies posted with the opening post of the thread. They read like this:

It's August on the International Dateline.


Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.


Policies

*One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

*Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the "+ (Multi-Quote) button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

*SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

*Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.



Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post to maintain all the formatting.

Interesting that it is left off once and the first page has pics of animals having sex and other "horney" beasts...
