    Went back down to the pond this morning with Greg Giesing. Lots of activity, and we got a few good shots. Here's a representative sample. All shot with the D2H / 300mm f2.8.

    Thanks Paul. As to where, you are welcome here in N. Alabama any time that you decide to cross the puddle. We can always find a spare bed. 8)

    well, you new you had at least a couple good ones before you left. Doesn't this get boring for you? I think it's time you moved on to swallows and whip-poor-wills. this is getting to easy for ya. good shots as usual
     
  6. Nice shots Frank.....you really outdid yourself with the last shot....EXCELLENT!!! :D :D :D :D :D
     
  7. Oooo...like that "pack of honkers" shot! :lol: I'm hanging around you when you come down here. I'll be watching for any pieces of talent that fall off so I can quickly grab them up! :wink:

    Good shots Flew. You've gotten pretty good at this. I just got back from an afternoon trip to the pond. Not a whole lot of action. I haven't looked yet to see if I got any decent shots.

    Thanks Kevin, but it ain't talent, it's dogged persistence. Just ask Greg. He'll tell you how hard we worked for these shots.... 8)

    Wow Frank,

    You are going to put us all to shame at Merritt.

    Fantastic shots.

    Thanks for sharing.
     
  12. All GREAT shots Frank, looks like you had a work out. Beautifully done! Would be nice to see some exif........... ;-) Anywhere I can look up to see the camera menu set up for flight shots, posted anywhere? Want to start using my memory banks! I know, novel concept. LOL
     
  13. Great work, Frank. I'm gonna have to dust off my 300 and look for some ducks.
     
  14. Love those shots Frank - especially the Canada Geese.
