    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...

    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!
