    During a trip out to one of our "bird islands" I had the chance to capture a bunch of snaps of these funny li'll birds. As soon as I get around to looking them over I'll pester ya'll with more of them.

    But I wanted to share this li'll fella, captured in mid take-off. Some fog had started to move in, so its a bit "flat", but I could not resist this stylish "running take-off".

    Shot with D200, 300 2.8 VR

    Great shot! Is it just me, or does he look a bit like Opus?
