My first post: GBH

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Tomerrifc, Aug 25, 2005.

  1. This is my first post. I shot this guy in back of the apartment complex we live in here in IL.

    300mm f/2.8

    I saw a great opportunity today as I was coming back from the office here picking up a package. There was a GBH sitting up in one of the trees behind our building. Just as I was about to run up to the apartment to get my camera, along comes a guy and his son on their bikes tooting their horns and off he goes. So the wait continues. :(

  2. It pays to be ready. Nice image.
  3. Thanks Gordon,

    You are so right, it really pays to be ready.

    It never fails, if I leave the apartment without a camera, I run into all kinds of opportunities. And if I take one with, nothing. Story of my life!

    Go figure!
  4. You just got to go home more often :wink: man everyones back yards or front yards drives me nuts! LOL........... Welcome to the cafe and what a nice first pic it is!
  5. Thanks Keith,

    I know what you mean about the front/back yards. Finally I live near some wetlands and can get a shot or two.

    Here's another from the other day.

    D2X, 70-200mm VR without the VR handheld. This one I don't think was as sharp.

    Very nice shot Ty. Your story reminds me of something that happened on our Florida trip this past June. We met this nice lady down by a boat ramp (I was looking for birds to shoot), and she took us onto the grounds of her multi-unit condo which was right next door. Right out in her back yard there were 2 or 3 GBH's, and a couple of Brown Pelicans. I told Janie right on the spot that I was ready to move to FL. :tongue:

    Welcome to the Cafe BTW. :wink:

    Welcome to the Cafe! You will enjoy the folks here, and there is a lot of great photography in all the forums. Nice start with your first posts - your GBH images are very good. Gotta say that I'm jealous that you have wetlands nearby. I hope to see lots more pix from them!
