Hi Larry,..gosh you sure have some moisture underfoot and i spotted the cage is still set for the critter.

As i mentioned before i am not great on camera settings but i used to wonder why some of my shots were clearer than others so i tried various settings but when i uploaded the shots i couldn't remember which setting took the good shots,..i downloaded FastStone image Viewer,..the free version,..so when i viewed a picture then clicked for the large image,..on the right side when you move the cursor you get all the details of the time/flash used or not and the exposure setting,..your last two shots are great,.. very clear,..2nd last picture has an exposure of 1/640 seconds and the last has an exposure of 1/500 seconds,..didn't check the others,..so its only when you can examine the settings on each shot that you can pinpoint the setting giving you the great shots,..yes the last two shots are perfect.

abhege,
Yes the tomato bed is right against the back fence where my property joins my back door neighbors. He keeps horses back there. But there is almost no pasture, mostly muck and woods.

glengarry23,
Yes the trap is still set up and is baited again now.
The program I use to download my photos from my camera tell which camera was used and the shutter speed, f-stop, focal length, etc. that were used when the photo was taken. I just have not taken the time yet to look at all the info, still too busy playing with all the different options available. It takes three hours to charge the battery, and it is done in the camera. So with all the zooming in and out, and all the settings being switched back and forth, I can drain the battery very quickly. I ordered an extra battery today with a charger. I think today I used almost every shutter speed and F-stop, I am still working on getting the right balance with the bright colors of the blooms and the correct tint to the foliage. The reds really seem dull, and when I increase the saturation the foliage is way to bright green. I tried every combination of color degrees, white balance options, saturation changes, etc. and still have not got it the way I want it. I have been more concerned with the dull reds, and getting a good background than getting a good focus. I did play with the manual focus some today, and that was pretty amazing, but that will take a lot more practice before I am good at it.
