    Hey Harris -

    All three are great, but the last image is spectacular. Ought to be in a photo mag. Congrats!

    Was it shot with a 500/4 or your 300/2.8 with a TC-17?

  5. Hey Harris, great shots! Those anhingas do some crazy poses when they let you get up close, don't they?
  6. Yep I am with Frank the last one rocks, what I want to know is......there must be a reason these birds let you get so close...... :D
  7. Well, I do know how to approach them sort of. I try to inch up, not be threatening. At times, I talk to them very calmly.

  8. Thanks Kevin, they are funny birds. Wish you coulda been there, you'd a loved it.
