Hi Y'all,

Well, I couldnt agree more with Frank, It would bne nice to be down there shooting with you!!!

INteresting to see the breeding plumage BTW, maybe next merrit should be in april may?
It would be great shooting with you Andreas. The problem with April/May for the next MI shoot is that while the rookery is very, very active the wetlands and MI are very, very slow. The rookery ain't all that large and all you would need is two days there at the most. I usually shoot from 3-6 or 7 PM, sleep over at a nearby motel and then shoot from 8-11 AM the next morning and that gets me the shots at the rookery and then I return 1-2 weeks later.

Great shots Harry. I need to get over to Florida and spend some time shooting. I would love to take a coastal trip from Texas around the curve into Florida just shooting wildlife.

JUst dreaming I know you take care of us in the best way. Would be fun to come down when the breeding is in full swing, maybe one year....

Harry,

It appears your Florida Snowies "blush" a lot more and redder that those we have here in TX. Never realized their feet went red as well. Super series!

Nick
Thanks Nick and you get bonus points for being the first one to catch the oversaturated reds in that shot.
