    You folks know me well enough to realize that I went absolutely nutzo stir crazy in the hospital for 5 days, so before I even came home once they sprung me, my wife was nice enough to drive me to Plum Island. Course..that may have been the last time shooting for a little while!

    Anyway....I stayed to the parking lots and boardwalks rather than my usual marsh hikes so these aren't anything special...but at least I got to push the little button that makes a D2X sing......

    A Few Sanderling shots:

    Hey Frank...

    Does scritching = Scratching ?

    The birds are cool but the sunset is magnificent.

    I would like to know some shot details on the sunset. Can you give us some exif data.

    Thanks,

    If you right click on the image, the exif data will be shown if you have an exif viewer....
