We had a great bunch of folks at the inaugural Cafe picnic here in Huntsville. The crowd was small but enthusiastic. I sure wish that more of you could have been here. We had a wonderful time. A big THANK YOU!!!! to Leigh Bramlett for all of her hard work in putting this event together, and just a little bit smaller thanks to Patrick as well for helping Leigh out, and watching the kids from time to time (j/k Patrick :lol . We spent the first half of the day at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens, and then went over to the local duck pond for the afternoon. I spent most of my time at the gardens in the butterfly house. Here are some shots from both locales. The garden shots were taken with the D2H / 70-200VR, and the pond shots taken with the D2H / 300 2.8 + 1.4 TC. Butterfly: Another: Honker: Quacker: More Day 1 shots can be seen here: http://flew.smugmug.com/gallery/664741/1/28649108 I went over to the Guntersville dam with Greg Giesing, Chris Knight, and Joe Martin this morning, and we got some pretty good shots. I'll post some of those when I get them processed.
