  4. Thanks Dianne

    They are really pretty easy to shoot.
     

  5. Thanks Paul

    Glad you enjoyed these
     
  6. Well, when you have 3 bouncing kids in the van and the camera is on a bean bag, and the motor is left running, you ain't gonna get a good sharp shot! I didn't! LOL! There'll be another time!
     

  7. I'm not sure What is Hagerman? And Why are you shooting out of the Van?
     
  8. Nice set Gary.

  9. Thank You Louie


    These seem easy to shoot.
     
  10. Well, the last time we were at Hagerman Wildlife Refuge, we saw a huge snake! I think it was a rattler but couldn't get a good enough pic of it. We usually have the van turned off and depending on where we are, I get out and use the tripod. In some cases, there wasn't enough standing room without getting wet - in the lake. Here's a link to Hagerman

  11. Thanks Looks like cool place!!!
     
  12. I love going up there! The Ranger's Station has a board where they list the current sightings for unusual visitors. They had spotted a Mississippi Kite Saturday, but we didn't get to see it! If you or anyone ever wants to go up there with us, just Holler!
