I had the distinct pleasure, honor and privilege to shoot with the legends of the bird forum here... Harry B and Mike Mac. My dad and I drove up to Harry and Linda's house monday after work. Those who have met them before know what great people they are, and those that dont hopefully one day will get to meet them. We left the next afternoon to meet Mike Mac for a late afternoon shoot, then stayed over night and shot again in the morning. After the afternoon shoot it was dinner, hit the shower, then chimp to some wine and cigars. The Alligator Farm Rookery is just awesome. Some nests are too close to shoot, close enough to pet the birds. (we didnt pet them) I have the least mp's and mm's of the group so have to make all 4 of my megapixels work overtime to keep up with the big guns I was shooting with..:Guns::Guns: Here are a few of my shots...
