Ft. De Soto morning surprise

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Mitchell, Mar 30, 2007.

  1. Had my surgical case for the morning cancel today.:Whistle:
    Snuck off to Ft De Soto to try out my new 300mm, f2.8 VR.

    The birding was very slow at sunrise. The lighting was nice, but I couldn't find anything except gulls when I was looking out at the water. When I turned around to walk away, this guy was right behind me!

    Things picked up a little later, but the lighting was not as nice.

  2. Looks like you had a very productive morning after all, esp for a 'kid sneaking out of school'!! :biggrin:
    Well done, Mitch!
     
  3. Sandi, don't tell my wife. She thinks I work too hard!:wink:
