went out early today onto the island with the D2H, 300 f2.8, 1.4x, on the way found this guy. NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/4.0    1/2000s    ISO 320 NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/4.0    1/1600s    ISO 320 I walked out to the pier at Bear Point and this gull passed: there were little green herons everywhere, they must have had a large group of young that fledged. Caught this one at the right side of my viewfinder: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/4.0    1/2500s    ISO 250 I went off the pier to go up the path some, then walking back I looked on the pier and this osprey was sitting on the light that I was earlier standing under. This is cropped over 70%: View attachment 12562 On the way home I pulled over on A1A and was about 50-60ft away and shot this from the car: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.0    1/1500s    ISO 250 NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/5.6    1/1000s    ISO 250 I shot a bunch and when I got out of the car, he flew off. Seems the car is the perfect blind. I can shoot from it and be close, but step one foot out and bam, gone.
