DETAILS: Nan & I were driving from Ft. Lauderdale to Naples, Florida in March 2004, on Interstate 75. Just west of Ft. Lauderdale is a tollbooth ($1.50). On both sides of the highway there are at least 4 Recreation Stops along the road. There are also 2 rest stops at Mile Marker 34 and 64 where you can turn around if you want.
These photos were taken at the first westbound recreation stop, about 5 miles past the tollbooth. There is a boat launch ramp and we were right by it. We went through the other stops but did not see a lot more birds.
All these shots were taken within 12 minutes!

Hi Doug,

That seems really odd, the last email I sent you was to the imageresources location that you posted here. The older emails we had about iView were from your furnituresolutions location, could that have something to do with it??

I activated my email button here at nikoncafe if that helps. Otherwise try nanhoge instead of roberthoge and I will fish it from her account.
