About Me

Thank you Democratic Underground for keeping me sane for the last four years. I think I was probably the longest lurker here. I started following DU during the Dubya administration. I was first attracted to the "Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week." I've been following along ever since. I always felt guilty for not participating, but refrained from doing so because I already spend way too much time online. However, after recent events, I just can't sit back any longer. I had to log on and thank you folks for all that you do. I'm a retired TV newscast director with forty years experience and more than eighteen thousand broadcasts under my belt, most of them live. I now travel the country (when I can) shooting landscape, astro and wildlife photography. You can see some of my photos at Ross-Kestin.Pixels.com or on Instagram at @oldguywithacamera. Thanks again! Ross K. Grumpy Old Guy

For your viewing pleasure

Here is a butterfly that I captured in my backyard yesterday. It was backlit by the late afternoon sun.

This is a testament to heavy photoprocessing. This is a heavily cropped image from a 45mp raw file, processed with Adobe Camera Raw and enhanced with Topaz SharpenAI and DeNoiseAI.

Possible subject for the May photo contest

Hi folks,

Tell me what you think of the following subject for the May photo contest.

"Critters of the world"

This would include any and all creatures, as long as they're wild. No pets, farm animals, zoo animals or wildlife sanctuaries. They have to be wild. It could be mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish or other sea life, bugs, insects, or any life forms I've forgotten.

I checked the list of winners, and I think the last time you did something similar was "animal planet" in 2016.

What do you think? Yes or no?


EDIT: It wouldn't have to be a Yellowstone grizzly bear or an Alaskan eagle. I've grabbed some good pics on my neighbhood walks and in my own backyard. It's the shot that counts.
