    After looking at UF's Snowys for the last couple of days, and agonizing because all I have to shoot is danged pigeons, I decided to go back through my shots from the February Merritt trip. I still have scores of shots that I haven't even processed, ad I did manage to find a few of these beautiful guys.

    All taken with the D2H / 300 2.8 + 1.4 TC.

    Gale,

    Janie and I will be arriving late Sunday night on the 29th of May, and will be leaving the following Sunday morning (6/5). In between, I expect to be shooting with you and Harry every day. :lol:

    Hopefully Harris will be up for several of these days, and I thought that I would try to go down to his place at least one day. Are you interested in going down to see him and shooting around his area?

    I sure hope that you and Jim (and everyone else....;-)) can join me for the Merritt session in late May / early June!!

    That will fill up a few CF cards for sure. :roll:

    You're making me rather ill feeling with the clarity of those shots.

    Paul,

    I certainly don't see anything wrong with this one. What is it that you don't like?

    Now focusing on your wife's back (or was that back-focusing on your wife??), that is a different matter altogether.... :lol:
