    Hi you'll,

    Today I hooked up with Backdoctor and Mrs. Backdoctor, Gail, and Kevin. We shot for a bit at the Viera Wetlands. We all missed Gordon very much. Get better soon Gordon!

    Our drive to the Wetlands was slowed down by first this guy

    then we ran into these two



    then right by the entrance we met this guy

    Later in the afternoon we met this guy
  2. Ouch Harry, your probably making Gordon sicker by the minute :biggrin:
    Nice shots, man quite the variety.............got to definitely make the trip east this winter, you guys are driving me crazy!!!! We should create a once a year annual CAFE official conference!!!!! And move it around once a year to allow others to attend. Hey I like that!!!! Wonder if that could be a tax write off :confused:  LOL!!!
  3. Harry, so many shots, such little time to process them all.... :biggrin:

    Great series, I know theres more to come...

    I got a wall hanger EAGLE FINALLY :>))) Good Roseys, Caught a Grebe eating a frog on the way out, and a few other things. Turned out not so bad after all. I was suprised I got so many keepers. The display looked like crap.. So pleasant suprise.

    Great day, wonderful company and fabulous lunch.

    So glad Mary could make it.

    Harry, you guys are killing me. I can't stand it. Don't you need to adopt a 58 year old son? :biggrin:

    Great shots.:wink:
  6. Great raptors!!! great captures!!!!
    All we have up here right now are some Canada Geese who are late in leaving and of course the omnipresent Ravens.

  7. Nice job everyone. Nice pictures too Harry.

    I wish I lived in Florida. I would go with ya'll once in a while.


    Can't wait to see the one where the frog was lunch :) 

  8. If you're housebroke and can work some, we've got room...:wink:

    Hi Harry -

    Thanks for the kind words! My cold is still terrible, but it should go away soon. And believe me I'm going to reschedule.

    These are great shots. That last Caracara shot on the pole is just amazing in it's color, detail and dead-on exposure. I don't know what those guys eat, but I wouldn't want those big golden eyes lookin' in my direction!

    Harry scrapes up roadkill to lure them Gordon.. Most of his pics are from old National Geographic he stole from the library..

    Hey Keith,

    Come on down. This is definitely bird central down here.
  13. Hope you feel better Gordon, we all tried to carry on and take the shots you woulda taken. Look forward toyou coming down....
  14. Harry, this is a great sampling of the beginning of a great day! Too bad the Caracaras were the only thing left on the posts when I arrived!

    Thanks Harris. One of the problems with living down here is that I take so many shots I cannot keep up with the psot processing. I'm a few thousand shots behind right now. I think I may be able to get a few more posted.

    It was a good day despite those darn lawn mowers thay had in operation. Kevin is doomed. I'm still cleaning the drool marks off the 500mm.
  17. Another great series Harry. You guys are killing me with all these great shots and wonderful subjects. You did them all justice. Sure would like to get there some day.
