My last birds

  1. Hey Everybirdy,

    It is with absolutely no sadness that I announce my final bird images........from my D200! :biggrin::tongue::biggrin:
    Had ditched one body, with the intention of saving a little to get the D300, but a friend made an offer on my second body enabling me to order my new toy.
    So here they is, the final D200 avian offerings:

    From the Brevard Zoo

    And the last Florida Scrub-jay shot with my D200 was this juvenile- in a couple more weeks it will be nearly impossible to tell them apart from the adults

    Nice Thomas, why are you not out shooting with the 300 today?
     
  8. Definitely a move in the right direction with the D300. But haven't said that these are very nice.

    I like that scrub jay. The image fits its name.
     
  10. I actually was John, wasn't nothing to shoot in my neck of the woods, mothing I'd post anyway- it's a bit windy and wet over here at the moment thanks to "Fay".
    Going to shoot a model condomnium tomorrow though! :biggrin:
     
  11. Thanks Louie, Allan. Been putting off the D300, but being able to unload both of my D200's inside of 2 weeks sure helped.
    Can't wait to break it in out on the refuge!
