taken by the local High School. There were 5-7 sandhills in various areas that I went to.

Mary hasn't taught you how to get the flight shots yet :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

The light is nice on these. I am hoping to get out in the next few days to try some early morning Osprey. Also heard that at 6:30AM at Juanita the Kingfishers come close, then again the fellow who told me this might sit in the bushes and laugh at the bozo who shows up so early :lol:

Nice Sandhill shots, Harris, and I'll have to find a time when we get down your way, but I think I'll wait until the you-know-what season is over.....

Always enjoy the Sandhills

It's interesting that yours are so much greyer than the ones up here. Ours are quite a bit redder. Must be the rust in the water :wink:

Harris,

These are great shots.

I really like the light and comp and position of the crane in the last one. Very beautiful

Thanks all, it was some nice warm early morning light. I shot from 7:30-8:30 and my foot hurt so I went home. I'm lucky these guys let me so close. Maybe theythink I'm one of them? :shock:

Excellent images Harris! Worthwhile getting up so early!
You make tha bazzoka 300mm f/2.8 look very handy, close to an all-day-lens...
no need to go to the gym when lugging this bazooka around... :?
