I went with Mary to Gainseville for her appt. with a specialist. On the way, we stopped off at Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. It is huge, and quite wild. There are wild Bison, Horses, Deer, and much more. http://www.floridastateparks.org/paynesprairie/default.cfm We did come across some deer which quickly went into the woods. I had to manually focus while shooting from my car. Lots of oof shots, this one is not bad, but the head is blocked some: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/7.1    1/250s    ISO 1250 I lived in Gainseville years ago while doing some post graduate work. At one time, I lived in a mobile home, around a pond with other mobile homes and cabins. There were these Banana Spiders that were as large as my hand. One time, while walking at night by my house, I walked into a web. That'll wake you up real quick. Here are two webs I shot, on a monopod with the D2H and 300 f4 with 1.4x: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/7.1    1/400s    ISO 640 NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/7.1    1/250s    ISO 800 anytime I see one of these guys, I still get the chills from when I walked into that big ol web... ewwwwwwwww! There was this gopher tortoise on the side of the road, eating. I got out. He watched me as I shot some photos of him, then he made a mad dash for his burrow. Here he is running to his burrow. Had to pan and use all my skills to capture him on the run: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/8.0    1/750s    ISO 250 NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/8.0    1/640s    ISO 250 glad they came out in focus, he was really moving fast.. Can you believe it, no bird photo! I did get a shot of a red shouldered hawk, but so far away it wasnt worth posting.
