Had a wonderful time with you and Marilyn, I only wish I had the opportunity to shake your hand to thank you both for a wonderful weekend. Looking forward to standing in the shadow of the 600mm lens next year.

fabulous time. I hope to attend one of these.

Great shots Frank. I thought Larry was checking the wind direction. So he would know what direction the birds would land.
