    These are a few of my pics from the sort of famous duck pond with Flew and Fred. Overall, I was pretty pleased with them. These were taken with a D70 and 70-300D lens. I think I need to start using A priority mode and stop the lens down some - it seems a little soft wide open.

    This guy kept on sticking his nose up. I'm glad he stayed in the water. It's a copperhead (I think)..

    Chris,

    These are really good!! You need to come back in the morning and shoot with Greg (and maybe Patrick) and I. You can see how much fun it is.

    Great first pond post. :wink:

    Thanks Frank. I doubt I'll make it in the morning. But I look forward to the next time.

    Chris those are some nice shots. Man do I hate snakes on the water. Something is just wrong with a snake slithering on top of the water.

    nice shots Chris. Sorry I missed ya yesterday. The only thing worse than a snake in the water is being in there with him and loose track of him.
