    As odd as it sounds those rainy days are great for color saturation. Nice series!
     
  9. Tim:

    Great shooting . . I especially like the blue color on the blackbird. Great color saturation.

    Thanks Andy,I think you are right about the weather playing a part in the color.

    Thanks Mike,how have you been doing?
     
  11. Tim:

    Been busy at work, then the flu, then 5 stitches in my 'zooming' thumb . . . so the Nikon has been in the bag for a few weeks. I have not been to the eagle nest for a while . . .are they still there . . . can you get to a vantage point on the old nest?

    Anyway, I'm always amazed at the sharp pics from your D200/70-200. A great combo.

  12. Tim:

    Sorry . . .amazed doesn't sound right . . .makes it sound like they are accidents. You're a great photographer . . I should have said in awe, or something more appropriate than 'amazed'.

    Thanks for the kind words Mike,the eagles went back to the old nest and you really can't get back there.With all this rain we would need a boat and then the nest is not in a good location for pictures.There are quite a few of us bumming out about this. :frown:
