    Knowing today was going to be cloudy I decided to take a walk at the Martin Wildlife area in Gadsden. I absolutely love subdued lighting on certain occasions and decided to try to create some images that have a different feel to them that can only be done in these conditions. All handheld with a 300/4 lens @ ISO 400. I hope you enjoy!

  2. Andy, you did a wonderful job with all of these. I really like the egret shots and the green heron.

    Nice little series of images Andy, I haven't shot birds in some time and these are pushing me to get out for a bit of birding.

    Hey Frank, hadn't seen you around the birds in awhile. Thanks for the nice comments and don't be such a stranger.
