    Notice I did not say last Black Skimmer pictures. When you have a digital camera, no film worries, and are on a beach with these guys for three hours, you can get a lot of captures. The beach pix will be coming over the next few days....

    The first image is just a bit unorthodox, but I love it. Looks like a manta ray to me. Enjoy!

    Thanks Frank. Coming from the zen master of the flying birdie thing, even said in jest, that's a nice comment. But I'm not stopping because you are still light years ahead of me! So what macro should I buy and get in deep s__t with my wife?

    Well, if you want get in real deep, go for the Nikkor 200mm f4 AF. It runs new at about $1,350. However, there are lots of really good macro lenses in the $450 - $700 range if you want to stay out of the dog house. The ones that I've seen, shot with, or seen excellent shots from are the Nikkor 60, 85PC, 105, and 70-180, the Tamron 90 and 180, and the Sigma 150. :wink:
