    I just moved up to a 70-200 VR. I went to the Bay Lands to see what birds were around. Not many BCNH left I saw one adult and a few young.

    These two were having a desagreement over something. another photog said the adult was enguraging the young to leave the nesting site. I do not know if he knew what he was talking abought, his camera had a funny looking white thing on front of it. :biggrin:

    Great shots!

    I'm with you, that guy couldn't have known what he was talking about, cause if he did he wouldn't have weird white things on his camera. :biggrin:

    I used to live in San Jose, lived there for 28 yrs.

    Gale, Thanks, yeh I try to keep those blown highlights down. Much easier to lighten up the dark areas. I looked through the photos you linked. those egrets put on a nice display of feathers.
