    Well I think this is a red necked stint, or maybe a big toe stint - they all look so similar!

    NIKON D200    ---    650mm    f/8.0    1/1000s    ISO 400

    NIKON D200    ---    400mm    f/6.3    1/2500s    ISO 400

    NIKON D200    ---    650mm    f/8.0    1/1250s    ISO 400

    NIKON D200    ---    650mm    f/8.0    1/500s    ISO 200

    These are taken with the 428, some wth the 1.7TC. Sorry for the noise of the first three as they are taken with ISO400. I need a faster shutter speed as all were taken inside my car, handheld against the window!

    Thanks Thomas! I was always thinking of visiting Florida someday too! So if you come to Hong Kong just let me know and if I come to Florida I'll knock on your doors!

    btw, this is where my avatar comes from!
