A Morning on the Water with Mike

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Jose Suro, May 25, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    I apologize for not being around but I took a much needed hiatus from photography and the boards since about Mother's day. This until last Wednesday, when Mike (Aka Birdman) so graciously invited Ron and I for a morning shoot on his boat. I'm about to jump into some major house renovations starting next Tuesday so I will in all probability be away for a while again. Here's the shots from Mike's boat:

    Thanks Mike!!!

    And thank all for looking!


    D200 - 300mm/F4 - all handheld

    (lucked out on this first one - handheld from a boat at 1/160s, ISO 800!)

    Wow x 4. One for each image.
  5. Awww ain't them there ospreys sooooo cute. Nice shooting Jose. It was good to shoot with you and Ron again. Hope to do it again soon. Went back out this morning to fight the wind and tide....but did get the ospreys to perform. Must have been that silly looking hat you had on that scared them the other day. *-)

  15. These are great shots! As a member of the 300 f4 fan club, I think the lens attracts super subjects.
