    Flew's got his GBH hotspot, now I have one too. Harris told me about this little retention pond at the H.S. not 1/2 mi from home, so I went there just after dawn this am, and saw a good 2 dozen Sandhills there. C&Cs welcomed.
    This one's a little soft on his head, but thought the comp was interesting.

    I'll comment, but I don't have too many criticisms. Looks like you've found one of Harris's goldmines. All very nice shots, and I just love the beautiful light.

    Are you having fun yet? :biggrin:

    It looks like you're enjoying Florida. Great shots. Don't those Sandhill Cranes make some strange noises. There was a group that decided to winter at a duckhole that I used to have. It is very rare for them to be in North Mississippi. The first time that I heard them it was before daylight and I could not see where it was coming from.

  5. I still have more hotspots up my sleeve...
  6. Great shots what you need to do now is start exploring and find some hotspots you can show to Harris
  7. I am so envious. I love those Sandhills. Sure wish we had a few here.

    Thanks Everyone, and

    the more I get to know my way around the area, the better chance I have of exploring neat little birdie hideouts with getting myself completely lost! :wink:

    Hey Steve
    Are you just on vacation down there, or did you just pick up and move so you could shoot the birds??

  10. Great shots, Steve. Love the #2 pose. I see the 500mm worths its price.
  11. Only comment is Sharp, crisp, well exposed and great poses...
