    Man I wish I had an opportunity to really shoot this camera before this guy flew in and hovered right in front of me!

    No time for a tripod...no time to set the focus settings exactly as I would have liked them. I had enough presence to spin the EV and try and lock him in a 30mph wind.....

    I'm going back after this guy tomorrow. I had heard that he hunted a specific area at a specific time of the day. I want to go and actually set up for him either tomorrow or Sunday.... (Murphy's las says he won't even show up)!
  6. Jim,

    If he shows up carrying a seal, I'll know for sure that your connections are better than the rest of us... :)

    These pics are simply striking... I wish you continued luck in finding him, but your skills are already up to the task. No luck needed there!
