Some sights from today's visit to Baylands Preserve. Philippe Roger was my shooting companion, and I'll bet he'll post some outstanding pics on this thread.

The group shot of the ducks was made possible by a family of desperados who were feeding them... despite signage all around the lake telling them not to. The short, stocky guy at the right had the look of a career criminal.

Maybe I'll get a reward if my photo helps to convict them :).

You'll have to wait a bit for my images. I shoot raw so I need to process them...

It was great fun once again to shoot with Frank. The weather was not all that cooperative, but it made a bit easier to not blow the whites on the egrets! :wink:

Anyway, here is one from yesterday's shoot.

That's OK. I know they'll be worth the wait. I'm looking forward to seeing how much advantage the 300/4 bought you. I wasn't too happy with the pheasant shots I got from the Kenko TC on the 80-200.

Sweet! I caught one of a Great Egret taking off, and am amazed at the size of his feet!

Excellent set Frank. I especially like the RWBB.

Thanks, Frank! The blackbird was posing so close to me that I couldn't take several shots because he was inside the lense's minimum focusing distance. I'm very pleased at the amount of detail the rig delivered on such a jet black birdie, and the way the 80-200 rendered the background. Here's another shot of the little poser.
