    It was early spring, but the spirited members of the Nikon Cafe were more than ready to click away to an approaching avian. Here's Flew making the final arrangements for our subject matter...

    Now, we can't just have these birds delivered to one loaction, so Flew made it known that a few needed to be placed in a strategic location on the other side of the pond...

    When you are expecting "incoming" avians, setting your White Balance is absolutely key to capturing the correct colors. Well, here's Rich Gibson doing his all to help his fellow shooter...

    And, more than ready to capture Mother Nature's flying critters in mid-air, Larry (Ozarkshome) is seen here relaxing with his favorite blend...

    Great shots Frank. I thought Larry was checking the wind direction. So he would know what direction the birds would land.
  9. Great set with super captioning!
