Excellent catch Gale. :!: :!:
Where was this one taken??
Wow Gale, that's great! One of my favorite Florida birds. You are getting great results with your new lens!
Is that a lure in it's mouth Janet. If so that is sad and I hope it is not permanently attached. Well taken image.
Thank you , Thank you.
This was taken at Black Point, MWR..
Not a lure. That is a little fish he caught.
Thanks for the nice comments.
Yes Janet, the lens is a life saver to me.
That new lens is doing wonders for your photography. Isn't it great to really get in close? Very nice shot. Thanks for sharing.
Congratulations! Nice shot, nice catch. RR, eat your heart out! Not only the "Reznick Flip", but a Spoonbill at that...
(Ron lamented at not being able to get a decent shot of a Spoonbill when he was at Ding Darling).
Great capture. I'm glad that you were able to make it over to Balck Point its a great location. You seem to be doing well with the 80-400. How do you like it so far?
Thank you very much. I really love this lens. For me it opened up my world alot. So many times you just can't use a tripod and this "VR" stuff REALLY WORKS. For my hands and arms are weak and shaky.
Been a long road, and still many miles of learning to do. This lens is deffinately making things easier.
I shot so many of these with thier face (bill/spoon) in the water, I figured one had to come up with a fish for me. I got two actually. :>)) Just thrilled me sily.
RR flip. Thats cool !
Thank you for your kind words.
Hey There Harry,
LOVE THE LENS. It is freedom. I see you are doing great at the wet lands. Great shots of every thing you posted. Got a kick out the Snowey. lol
Black Point is really neat. I met a Gal, quite by accident, through work who is also a birder/photographer.
She knows all the cool places. Hope she will join us this weekend.
We had a blast. Among our finds, an OTTER, boy we were clicking away. Got a pretty good one of him eating a fish.
I saw the Mother of all Alligators waiting for the Snow Birds to get here this weekend. lolol
Watch out guys.
Look foward to seeing you soon Harry. What is the schedule looking like.. When the Wet Lands and When MWR. Trying to make both for sure.
Home today with the cold everyone has been trying to give me. I don't really feel to bad. That magic stuff I told you about is really saving me from a bad dose if it.
Cheers and Thank You for your kind words.
Gale, I sure hope you are kidding about the first part (the 'gator).... 8)
As to the schedules, I plan to send out some email to all parties tonight, but here's what I'm thinking right now:
- I want to go up to Viera on Saturday morning early. Will probably leave the motel about 6:30 - 7:00 (trying to get the sunrise). Will probably shoot for a couple of hours or so there, then head up to Blackpoint and shoot until lunch.
- We can all meet somewhere centrally located for lunch, and then decide what to do for the afternoon and evening.
- Meet somewhere for supper with everyone that can, and discuss shooting schedules for Sunday and Monday.
- We do need to decide where we want to eat on Saturday for lunch and supper.
What do you guys think?
Not kidding, this beast was hugeeeeee!!!!! (but on the other side of little stream :>))
Take into account. Early and Late at both places.
Hey Burger King is everywhere and close.
Take lunch on road and eat on the way.
I was so excited yesterday, I could have cared less if I ate or not.
OH, Black Point has Port-o-lets :>))
For Viera, just zip down the road to Burger King, or closer gas station.
Maybe do half a day one place morning and the other evening and then flip it the next day. Orrrrrrr
While leaving MWR there is a great place to see GBH nests and birds in Titusville as well.
So much to see so little time..
At the moment I just have no clue for dinner.
Frank, is this big enough lol
We could have gator tail for dinner...lolol
Talk about fill the frame !!! lol

Think he is big enough for dinner. Good stuff down here. Tastes like chicken. :>))
I'm no expert in reptiles, but that thing looks an awful lot like the creature that was identified by the guide at Ding Darling as an "American Crocodile". If I remember correctly you need to get a good look at the snout to tell the difference between an alligator and a crocodile. I hope to never get close enough to really tell... or at least to use a long enough lens not to care.
Here's a pic of the crocodile from Ding Darling:
Great pic of a crock.
This one out there is deffinately an aligator.. Hid his snout in the bushes. But it is round. Also look at difference in the legs, Body structure is a bit different..
However, He more than filled the frame. These are not cropped. Just resized.
Gale, all this time and you've been holding back. Now I see we have two sandbaggers in the group. Huh! :shock:
Hi There Harris,
Yeah I have a few...But they are getting better and more fun.
Seeeee ya real soon!!!!!!
