    Well, today was the first day with the D200, so I thought I'd start with something easy.

    So, here they are:





    I think I'm going to like this camera.

    Two other "critters" in this post from today.

    Blue Herons with 300 & TC1.7
    Grebes 300 & TC1.4

    Hi Gale:

    She was, but deciding not to probably saved her life. She was gone with no eggs when the ranger arraived.

    Bull Frogs are "cute" but of course they wreck environments when they are introduced.

    Don't know what the answer is for that stuff....especially the Snapper as it looks like she's been there a while....

    Thanks for the kind words.
  7. Yeah that D200 is sweet! Still "ooh"ing and "ahh"ing over mine since I got it a month ago. Great shots. Never tire of looking at those Pied-bills, they are such handsome birds.

    Yes they are a very cool bird. BTW that is her nest she was building it out of the mat stuff that had sunk. Thanks for the compliment.
