  2. WOW spectacular great scenic in the first one the D2X does the detail well as usual your birdie shots are 2nd to none. Hope you are feeling better
     
  3. Love the sleepy bird, Jim! Sorry you had to brave the elements. I was at Viera today with Harry & Gale. Wasn't going to bring my towel but glad I did as I was sweating like a stuck pig. Soon, the cool weather will be here! Hurry on and come on down!!

    Thanks Everyone

    It's nice to be able to get out shooting once again!
     
  10. Jim it is sure good to see you are out and about again. I have missed looking at your posts. These are great and welcome back. We were in the Tetons a few weeks ago and even had snow so I can relate to the cold.
