    Nice images. Especially #2. Glad you could get so close to them.
     
  3. Very nice captures Kevin, good job.
     
  4. Kevin,

    Beautiful images. Very nicely done indeed.

    BTW, have you been to Ramah by the Atchafalaya? Last time I was there, a couple of weeks ago, there were a few of these guys. However, they were quite far away.
     
  5. Excellent in flight shots Kevin. Very nicely done.
     
  6. Great shots Kevin!
     
  7. Maji,
    I know where Ramah/Maringouin exit is off of I-10, is this where you speak of? Is there a rookery near there? Thanks for viewing and the kind words.

  9. Kevin,

    I think you are talking about the same Ramah...

    It is a wild life preserve and there are some rookeries there. I have seen a few juvenile herons there, so there must be a rookery. Other than the gators, it is a nice place to go bird watching and photographing.
     
  10. Hi Kevin a very nice set of images of one of my favourite spoonbills.

  11. Phillip,
    this is with the 120-300 and a 2x convertor, a very easily handheld 600 5.6 lens, but I'm still wanting the 500mm sigma for handheld shots and use it with the 1.4tc. Thanks for viewing and the kind words.

    addition of a serene fly by. all with the D3, sigma 120-300 2.8 and the 2x attached.
    I'd really like to have the 500mm 4.5 for handheld shots also and then ultimately the 300-800 5.6. I reckon you gotta dream or atleast put out the positive energy.
