    Re: Post Your D500 Shots

    I live in Fountain, Colorado - just south of Colorado Springs home of America’s Mountain - Pikes Peak. But for this challenge, I thought I would show you something just a bit different. When most people think of Colorado, they think the Rocky Mountains and for the most part they would be right. What they don’t know is that Colorado is actually a high desert. Pikes Peak tops at 14,114 ft above sea level, Colorado Springs is at 6,035 and Fountain is 5,554. So what does this all mean - well here in Fountain and on the east side of Colorado Springs - there is nothing but rolling hills and grassland prairies!

    One of the things I love about Colorado is it’s wildlife. So this week I bring you the Pronghorn or more wrongly called an Antelope (which it is not) also comes with nick names such as: The Prairie Ghost or The Speed Goat! The guys are VERY tough to get close to as their eyesight is 8x that of humans and they are extremely skittish - just think if you had to live with an 8 power binoculars permanently attached to your face - not fun - you’d be on edge 24/7 also! They also have very large eyes with a 320° field of vision.

    Both males and females can have horns; not antlers (Antlers shed yearly, horns are forever) but only males have the “prong” a forward-pointing tine. Males are further differentiated from females in having a small patch of black hair at the angle of the mandible (on the face). Pronghorns have a distinct, musky odor. Males mark territory with a preorbital scent gland which is located on the sides of the head.

    The Pronghorn is the fastest land mammal in the Western Hemisphere, being built for maximum predator evasion through running. The top speed is very hard to measure accurately and varies between individuals; it can run 35 mph for 4 miles, 42 mph for 1 mile, and 55 mph for 0.5 mile. It is often cited as the second-fastest land animal, second only to the cheetah. It can, however, sustain high speeds longer than cheetahs.

    These were taken last night at my grandson's LaCross game. I was setting about half way up the stadium and at about the opposite 45 yard line from the net. This is with my D500 taken at 1.3 crop factor using my Nikon 70-200mm lens. These are straight out of the camera without any adjustments except resize so I could post them. I got to watch the game from up high and sit down while I was shooting it. I am very pleased with my images. I have never even seen a Lacross game even on TV before.

    I've never seen so many photos with the great bokeh as you guys seem to get. Is the 500 responsible or are you guys just great photographers? Paul

    Hey Wev, Another tip...... The Fn2 button on the D500 can also be programed as a HUMBLE button
    Look under CUSTOM SETTINGS F1 to program. LOL
