    Hi You'll,

    Having looked at Bill's outstanding GBH pics and reading how he had to stack TCs to get a close up of the GBH I was inspired to post this pic. It shows two very rare things, Frank sitting down, he put the energizer bunny to shame this weekend, and Frank taking a picture of a bird that wasn't airborne.

    I don't think I've ever seen him with his D2h and sitting down either.

    What a cool guy!

    Thanks Harry,

    Hey Harry,

    I missed that great moment :>))

    I can't wait to get the Fearsome4some (more birdies) photo journalistic pics to be done.

    It was worth missing the Big Bird!!!!!!

    Great shot.
    Cheers
    Gale

    Hey Patrick,

    This is the second time I got to shoot with Frank and each time was an absolute pleasure. His enthusiasm is contagious.
     
  5. Well, I'm most certainly glad that I have inspired someone to do something, and now I am SURE you folks must have been carrying fish or something :wink: . Man, that is really cool. What a treat to have birds that are so used to people that you can approach that closely. From the look of it, it isn't as if you have to stalk them either, that looks very open. (Kicking myself for not finding a way to get my butt as well of the rest of me down there).

    Dang me.......

    Hey Bill,

    That GBH was so calm we could have gotten out our macro lenses.

    Hey Gale,

    It happened quickly and was easy to miss. Frank didn't stay still for very long

    Hey Frank,

    I'm sorry, I just forgot how pasty looking you northerners are. :lol:

    It was truly one fine time. I was just sorry we had only 3 days to shoot.
