    Hi Phil,
    Thank You...

    Now it is the camera. Could not do this with the 80-400 VR and the D100.

    I would like to think I had a bit to do with it. I wanted this series soooo bad. Nailed every image. About 5 of them I think.
     
  4. You choose a great pose. He's holding out his wings for all to see. Beautiful, Gale!

    Thank you Brett,

    I think this series will go to print :>))))))
     
  10. Very nice shot Gale! Much better than anything I have done with Osprey's. Looks like you were able to get at almost eye level for this shot. Is this near a nest site, or were you just lucky to be there at the right time?

    Cheers
    Tim

    Hi Eric,
    I have not printed yet. But the series of about 6 will be printed....

    Thank you very much...

    I don't know how I got into this bird thing. Used to shoot flowers ..

    Things that make me go hummmmmmmmmmm

    Well I can tell you this, never shoot the first bird. You will be doomed...lolol

    Then the LLD get far more extensive and expensive.... grrrrrrrr
