With my vr 70-300 reach, I thought I will do hand-held shots. But Dave Dickerson was kind enough to lend his 300 f/4 with Nikon TC 1.4. Here are some of my captures:

I guess I needed more ammo. But the Herons were cooperative:

Oh Sam! These are all beautiful! Certainly brings back the memories for me! Love the barn swallow! That's about the nicest photo I've seen of one! Interesting perspective on that dead tree - interesting lines! Could it be you're now hooked on birdies?

Well done Sam, nice to see your images.
I just arrived home (during the night) and will be processing some in a bit...
I am looking forward for your GBH captures. Thanks

Very nice Sam. I have been looking forward to seeing what you "caught" so close to the dam with the fisherman.
Glad that you liked it. BTW who mowed your yard?
Nicely done, Sam. You made the most of your time at the dam.
Thanks for your lens. I am so impressed with that combo.
