    Hi you'll.

    I'll be spending the next week with my son and his family in Georgia so
    I figured I'll leave you with a few flight shots from the rookery in St. Augustine.

    Hey Frank,

  9. Gorgeous shots, Harry. May I ask you where is this rookery in St-Augustine? When I got down to New Smyrna, I used to stop by a small tea saloon in Old St-Augustine owned by a very nice couple. They make so good pastries :oops: :)

    Hi Frank,

    Good idea. I started out with my 300mm and 1.4 but had to switch to my 80-400

    Thank you Dao. The rookery is in the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. Its on A1A, off of exit 311 on I-95. Here's their link http://www.alligatorfarm.com/
     
  15. Wow, really neat shots. Thanks for sharing.
     
  16. Great shots, especially considering your unde 180mm shots, nice to have that flexibility in this case instead of the prime...........im sure a few are frothing at the mouth. LOL............

    Hi Keith,

    Yeah, I went in there with my 300mm/f4 and 1.4 TC all ready to shoot and found that I had way too much lens for most of the shots. With tears in my eyes I switched to my 80-400. :cry:
     
  19. Just fantastic this place loosk like Nirvana, I need to go there
     
  20. Thanks for the link.
