Patrick and I took a brief break at the pond at lunch today. While we were waiting for the big guys to fly, I took a couple of shots at these guys.

Shot with the D2H / 300mm f2.8.

very nice Frank. good job on the exposure and timing.

Looks like we need to bring a gabage bag with us the next time we go. I guess it's getting wam enough for the inconsiderates to show up and leave thier trash.

Greg,

Yes, we do. It is really disgusting. Some of it is because the trash cans fill up to overflowing, but some is just due to piggy visitors.

I wonder what their mothers would say?? 8)
