I wanted to thank everyone for making my our first visit seem like a family reunion.

I started a new thread and just decided to put all my pictures in one place, you guys are welcome to add your pictures.

I would like to thank Patrick and Leigh for inviting me into their home and for the great homemade food.

I would like to thank Dave for letting me use his 300 f4 w/TC 1.4.
It is a great combo and it was used for all the shoots at the duckpond.

All shoots were with D3 and 24-70,70-200, or Dave's 300 w/TC 1.4

Diner before we arrived.

Don't feed the wild Animals !!!!!!!!!

I had a hand full of corn and when the camel came to the window, he went right past the corn in my hand and went straight for the cup of corn in the cup holder!

He grabbed it and turned it up until it was totally gone. Mike and I couldn't breathe.... we were laughing so hard! Mike finally took it from him..... it was soooo funny!

I was snapping these with my D3 and trying to hold the camera far enough away that it would focus... so forgive the crappy pictures.
