Hi You'll,

A pair of Sandhills have a nest in the conservation land behind my house. Everytime I go for a walk I've been running into them and their chicks.

Harry,

These are just too cute. Have you gotten your D2H yet? Were these from the new cam? What do you think?

Regards,

Frank

Hey Frank,

My D2H arrived on Wednesday. Talk about bad timing. I had a colonoscopy this morning so on the day of its delivery I was occupied in drinking down 4 liters of laxative to prep for the colonoscopy. I was a bit too "busy" to even open the box. I'll be giving the D2H its first workout tomorrow.

Harry,

Sorry to hear about the 'roto-rooter' job. Janie had one of these a few months back and it really made her weak (no food, and an empty digestive tract).

Hope everything comes out OK.... 8)

PS - Can't wait to see the pics from your new cam. :wink:

Hey Mike,

The test went fine, no problems found. Now I can give the D2H a run tomorrow. I am so looking forward to that.

Hey Frank,

The procedure went fine except the doctor wouldn't let me take pics. I was hoping to break new ground on butt shots. :lol:

Me and the D2H have a date at the Wetlands tomorrow. I can't wait.

Hi Harry,
Those little chicks are the cutest ever. Great shots!

I'm looking forward to seeing shots with your new D2H..

I just found dust bunnies so will call you soon as you know how to clean the D2H sensor.. You know you're the only one I'll ever trust with cleaning my sensor.

Hi to Linda too,

Gaye

Hey Frank,

Its tough competing with you guys with bird shots so I figured to go for a less busy area. Colonoscopy photography seems to be a wide open at the emoment, a void just waiting to be filled. :lol:

Harry -

I missed this the first time around. I've never seen baby Sandhill's before -- looks like their legs grow quicker than the rest of them. Seeing how tiny they are makes me think that they must eat constantly... I'm sure it keeps the parents busy.

Nice captures you got there! On top of good technicalities with them, you were able to get some good shots to show how they interact.

Glad to hear your test, uhm, worked out well.

Hey Jim,

Thanks and I'm sorry you couldn't have been here too. I've been looking at your recent shots and you seem to be doing pretty good though.
