Took these this past weekend while I was down the beach house celebrating Lorries 50th birthday. Nothing special about the shots. The birdie shots taken with the 300 f4 and 1.4 convereter
Willet.... I believe

All nice shots, Mike, but I especially like the 2nd Tern shot! I've seen a few but not in a position to shoot them. They're on my list, along with Black Skimmers!

Great images Mike, happy birthday to Lorrie. Really like the feel of the beach house.
Hey Gordon welcome back hope you had a great trip. I will tell Lorrie Happy birthday thanks. That beach house is an incredible house, When in use the window shutters automatically open and it looks even better

Wonderful birdie shots Mike (as usual....;-)), and a great pic of the birthday girl. I wish Janie would let me take shots like this one. She is so camera shy. :?

Looks like you guys had a great time. :D

Thanks Frank, well after trying to shoot the gulls and terns I today ordered the markins m20 and the Wimberly Sidekick, next is the gitzo pod to go along with it.
Lorrie isn't thrilled with me taking pictures of here without letting her Photoshop it to touch it up, she was surprised when she seen this one fresh out of the camera.

Mike,

You will love the M20 and Sidekick. I went totally over budget with my big Wimberley and the Gitzo 1325, but I couldn't be more happy with the results that I'm getting with them.

Tell Lorrie that she shouldn't worry about any pics of her that you take. She is lucky to have a master photog for a fiance.... :wink:
