    Re: Dawg Pics' 2020: No more croppy photos.

    I am bat obsessed. Drove to East Hemet, CA to see the bats emerging from under the bridge near the orange groves. This is possibly the larges Mexican Free-Tail bat colony in S. California. It was delightful to watch. I learned a lot by screwing up a lot of images first try out. Trying again tomorrow to see if I can get an improvement.

    Using two different browsers, the EXIF isn't displaying for me - but I have a supplemental EXIF reader extension in Chrome which gives me the info (and it could be a forum glitch which causes the EXIF to not show up). According to it, it looks like the image was taken at 8:17pm. Is that correct? I'm just wondering if that is the right time because I've never seen any bats but would like to keep watch. One of our local boy scout troops made bat houses which are installed at a park. In fact, I think I took a pic of one with an entrance hole near its top which allows the hawks to sit on top and peck at the hole.

    For what it is worth (I know, not much ) the bats photo EXIF is not showing on my Google Chrome or Firefox. However EXIF's are showing fine on other photo's.

    I would be more worried if they have came from Wuhan rather than the EXIF . Super capture though

    @hark
    Yes, the time is correct. We got to the bridge around 7:30 and waited until the first scouts came out. The sun was just behind the mountains. My initial capture was an iPhone movie that is time-stamped at 7:49, which right after they started emerging en masse. Sunset is about 7:45.

    It was spectacular, and what was surprising is that they came out in waves. Just when we though they are about all out, more flew out, and that happened several times.

    We have bats in my neighborhood, and they start flying at about sunset. So, if you are looking you need to be out a little before sunset.


    EDIT: My camera clock was off by 50 minutes unless I accidentally changed something while trying to figure out my settings. So the metadata shows 19:00 17.25, which is about an hour earlier than when I actually shot the image.
    I had opened up my aperture a lot and didn't change it for this image, so way way way over exposed, and lack of focus. So, there you go. Live and learn. Shows how much you can recover using RAW data.

    Thank you.

    This image was pretty underexposed. I was having a difficult time because I really didn't know what to expect, and I had to run the shutter speed up. I should have knocked the EV back down. I mostly set focus by guessing and just shot a bunch hoping something would be acceptable. I changed the settings a few times, changed lenses and still only have a few things worth processing. This image could be better, but I was happy I got anything at all under the circumstances.

    There is a fence taller than me that makes it kind of difficult, and if I stand on the bridge, I am shooting towards the sun. Anyway, it is good practice.

    Maybe because I loaded it from the gallery?
