IR photographers!

What do you use for IR photography? I read an article with instructions for removing the filter covering the sensor, of a purposely purchased, relatively cheap camera to be dedicated to the purpose.

Are there other options? TIA!

In line at Home Depot

garden center and an old couple is ahead of us, maskless, which is now optional, purchasing several items which included two very thin 6' trim pieces of what I think was pine. They get into it with the cashier, seems they thought each was $1.19, and find out each are $1.19 a foot, so they no longer want them. Old guy says to the cashier, "It's all Biden's fault, he stopped the lumber!" His wife says, "Shut up, no one wants to hear that stuff".

#1, what does "Biden stopped the lumber!" even mean?
#2. If I wasn't so chicken I would have asked her if she knew he was an asshole when she married him.
#3. If I wasn't so chicken, I would have asked him how he liked my new pair of Joe Biden Commemorative Aviators I was wearing.

#4. I'm so chicken because anyone so un-selfaware as to be yammering like that at the register probably is packing as overcompensation for low self esteem anyway. 😁

Here in west central Florida (edit to add Turkey Vulture)

the summer routine is heat builds over the center of the state and forms huge thunderstorms every afternoon that move to the west. So the return of daily afternoon showers bring a variety of birds riding the wind currents in front of the storm. They rarely have to flap their wings, just soaring in circles, pushing west.

I would not claim these to be of the highest quality photos, they are cropped quite a bit, sharpened and de-noised. The birds are very high and all were taken with 1000-1200 mm lenses with 10lbs of camera and lens pressed against my nose, looking straight up!

Love this Heron out in front of the storm, sky still blue, almost an X-Ray of the wings

Swallow-tailed Kite

Anhinga, from the Tupi Indians in Brazil, meaning "devil bird" or "evil spirit of the woods."
