Last week Randy was gracious enough to take me out on the boat, show me the best spots for birds, teach me the best settings for shooting them, and loan me a 70-300 and a 300 f/4 to use. I know, incredibly generous.

I've finally had time to post-process the pictures I took. I fired the shutter nearly 500 times that morning - I've kept 7 of the pictures. I probably had about 20 keeps in all, but these are (I think) the best 7. I noticed that the first 100 or so shots I took with the 70-300 were not very clear. I'm not sure what the problem was. When I switched to the 300 f/4 on the herons, the picture quality noticeably improved. But then I went back to the 70-300 on the ospery and got some really clear shots. Odd.

Anyway, here's the goods. C&C appreciated.
