    Hi you'll,

    The other day I went to the Wetlands and it was dead there. I decided that I would wait for a bird and then just follow it around. Fortunately and old friend stopped by and for the next 1 & 1/2 hours I chased after him. I followed him to 4 different trees. I did u-turns, I followed him in reverse, and went faster than you're supposed to go in the Wetlands. He was amazing because he managed to be backlit whenever he stopped. Here's a few of the pics I got from the chase.

    Harry, these are wonderful. Looks like you are bonding to that D2H and 300 f4. 8) They are all good, but the first one is awesome.

    Regards,

    Frank

    BTW, looks like I'll be coming down the first week of June. My wife's family is having a reunion, and guess what; they are coming to Merritt Island. :lol:

    I'm going to let all of the previous Merritt attendees know. Hopefully everyone will be able to make it down (including Gaye this time....;-)).

    Thanks Gale. I got these around 10 AN. I've noticed that the ospreys and eagles seem to be more active in the later AM than around sunrise.
