    Finally made it down to my winter digs in Jensen Beach Fla yesterday, and Harris the Backdoctor, was not only was generous enough to pick me up at the airport some 45 miles away, but also took me out for a very late day shoot at the Bear Island Preserve. Got there super late, with only a few precious minutes of light left, but I could see the tremendous potential it's got there. There were several species of birds all over the place! So, without further ado, may I present the first of many shots I'll be posting from sunny Florida!
    btw, these were shot with my new D2Hs/70-200VR+TC 1.7:biggrin:
    Following the one of our master's footsteps, Flew, these were shot in full Manual & Auto ISO.

    Beautiful images, Steve. Basking in the warm sun of Florida...I'm jealous, although the temp in Chicago was 70 degrees today.

    The first image is quite pleasing...the background color is very nice and portrays well with the white feathers of the bird. The color in the sunset image is also very beautiful...both images well done.
     
  3. great signs of things to come! Will be looking for more.

    Steve, sure wish that I could be down there with you guys (and gals). I spent a couple of hours today scouring several sites at the Wheeler NWR between where I live and where Patrick lives and didn't see a fricking bird. :cool:

    Maybe I can come visit for a few days in February. :smile:

    Nice shots. :wink:
     
  9. Welcome to Florida, Steve! Nice shots! I'm sure you'll be enjoying the months you'll be spending here. And nice to have Harris around to shoot with. Hope to meet up with you guys soon!!
