Haven't posted in a while and just getting caught up from when Chris (from Alabama) was here so thought I'd post a few from that visit. These were all with my recent standard combo~300/f4 afs + 1.7tc, except the scenic which was taken with Chris' Tokina 12-24/f4. All handheld and shot between ISO100 & 250. Really liked the red on the leading edge of the far wing! There's been some recent discussion about Reddish Egrets and Little Blue Herons I thought I'd include this fairly decent sampling of a Little Blue Heron, again for comparison. And for those who are interested in seeing at least a portion of what Viera looks like, this was taken with Chris' Tokina 12-24 lens. He was kind enough to let me play with it for a few shots. It was the first time I've ever shot with a really wide lens before. And I'm not much of a landscape photog so pardon it if it's not up to standard! :wink: I think I could have a lot of fun with a lens like this!! Thanks Chris for the few minutes of fun!
