I spent last week traveling in florida shooting Viera, the Brevard Zoo, the Miami Zoo and the Wakodahatchee Wetlands....
I gotta say Florida is tops for wildlife, I haven't been anywhere better

These were with the D300 + 80-400 or 300/4 + TC
The d3 & 300/2.8 stayed home since I flew down this time

A fantastic series - I wondered if there really were tigers in the wild in Florida - maybe that TC really does extend the reach of the 400 far enough!!!

I concur Randy...that's why I live here.

Fantastic shots by the way. It's not everywhere you can get a Tiger to stick his tongue out at you! I especially like the Green Heron with its fluffed-up head feathers.

Amazing images. Can't make up my mind on which I like the most. No. 1 is so precious with the bad hair day portrait, while the yawn in No. 8 makes me smile. However, because I love repeatitions and OOF repeated object, No. 5 got my final vote. Just one little nit pick there, I would love to see if you can digitally add on the toe nails that got clipped in this image.

Thanks for sharing.

Gotta say I love the last photo, especially. I live here, and need to find the time to go out and do a photo walk right in my area! I think I need some more reach though, and have contemplated a TC... we will see! Loved your pictures, fantastic job!

The Wakodahatchee Wetlands are something else again, can't wait to go back there again. Your images are all first class.

consider the 300/4 + TC, probably the best IQ for the money you can get

thx....it is a nice place with a nice boardwalk

Awesome shots.
thx
