    This is a sequence I captured at Tom Carver's Island.

    The reddish egrets started flying and then one attacked the other one in mid-air. The whole sequence lasted about 2 secs.

    1. Someone is following me...

    2. Hey you, take this...

    3. Go away!

    4. Ok, ok! I'm leaving!

    5. Don't come back...

    6. Gosh, my shadow feels different...am I turning into something else?

    I hope you like them.
  2. Super catches Luis, good action shots.

    Great shots Luis. I really like the last one too, with the cormorant shadow. Too funny.

    I am sorry I missed you here in California. I took everything out of my camera bag and only put what was absolutely necessary. Your business card was one of the many things I took out and did not put back in. So your number sits at my house in Florida while I sit in California. I did get some shooting in and I had a blast.

    I agree Luis - super captures. These guys are worth the price of admission to watch, even if you took no pictures. :rolleyes:

    Why is it I go to this Island every day... I bring you out 2 times and you get the one shot I've been looking for and never get. PUNK !!!

    Nice !!!!!!!
  10. Very, very nice. All that action and still managed to get crisp well exposed shots. I'm jealous.

    He-he...and I got the sequence on the first trip... :biggrin:
    Beginner's luck I guess...

    Here is one missing from the sequence.
    My camera took an X-ray of the cormorant...

    Anyway, thanks again Tom for taking us to the Island.

    I told you this was a great sequence when I first saw it; nothing has changed that opinion. Nice to have met you and imaged with you.
