Hi you'll, Yesterday I shot with Kevin and Gale at the Viera Wetlands. I went home a tad discouraged because, as we had talked about the whole time we were shooting, it was really a sloooow day at the Wetlands. I managed to get these shots. a northern shoveler NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/5.6    1/640s    ISO 250 a Greater Yellowleg NIKON D2H    ---    400mm    f/8.0    1/500s    ISO 200 a snowy egret NIKON D2H    ---    400mm    f/8.0    1/1250s    ISO 200 a Least Sandpiper NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/5.6    1/1250s    ISO 400 a Broad-Winged Hawk NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/6.3    1/320s    ISO 400 a Green heron on a bad hair day NIKON D2H    ---    400mm    f/6.3    1/1250s    ISO 250 a little ole gator NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/6.3    1/500s    ISO 250 What a bummer, no eagles, no opreys with fish in their talons, no caracaras, and no large groups of birds. As I was culling out some shots I did some quick math and I had 245 shots of 18 different varieties of birds and I had passed on shots of another 12 or so because I had similar shots of them already. We had seen over 30 varieties of birds in a few hours. In fact it was a fine day at the wetlands. The only thing slow was a certain photographer who had become so spoiled that he couldn't appreciate what was in front of him.
