went over to the high school to get some late afternoon light on the Sandhills. There were about 13 there, and 7 or 8 more flew in, blew the flight shots as my shutter speed was too slow. Shoulda taken the tc off as I really didnt need it. Below are all uncropped shots... NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/250s    ISO 400 NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/350s    ISO 400 NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/100s    ISO 640 now as you know, I shoot these guys all the time. They walk up to me and eat right next to me, pecking at the ground. My wife was with me, and one with a healed leg fracture went towards her, in a way I've seen others do to scare her off. Must not have liked her yellow shirt, or the flash of the D100. Eventually he got curious about me. I talked to him a bit, then he checked out my monopod, pecking at various parts of it.. NIKON D100    ---    72mm    f/8.0    1/60s    at one point I had my back to him, and was talking to Mary, then turned around to shoot more, and must have spooked him as he made a funny noise and flapped his wings to jump back.
