    Randy and John,
    Thank you very much :>))

    D100, 80-400 VR@400mm 5.6 ,1/640 sec

    Thank you !!!

    Hi Louis,
    The Old machine...lololol D100....

    They are both great cameras. Just needed the D200 for speed...I like the color and tone on the D200 as well, no more fighting the red.

    Thank You !!!!!
  9. Thanks Gale and Happy New Years to you as well. I'm doing my best to get back down there during MI3. Haven't got quite worked out yet.

  10. that's a nice capture!! I didn't realize how long their bills were! Bird books are not always the best examples of birds! :) 
  11. Very nice shot Gale, btw like your signature.....

    For Ann

    Here is another view of the unique bill they have :>))
    He was looking right at me and posing. :>)))


    Hope you like him :>))
  15. Hi, Gale.

    Nice shot! They really do have a different bill. They are supposed to spend the summer in this neck of the woods, but I can't say for sure whether I've ever seen one. Certainly not close enough to see the bill like that.

    Thank you Dennis,

    Took me awhile to get good shots of them. Either the light was not good or they were to far away. Or to many obstructions.....

    Guess that is how it goes with wild life. Wait and be patient.
  17. It's Wonderful!!!! I like it actually better than the first one, I love the way he is looking, almost like he is saying "Hmm, another silly human with one of those black boxes"
    Great view of that bill of his, now I know why they are called a "shoveler" duck
