    Frank will be proud of me. All of the bird shots were taken on the middle of the causeway between Tampa and Clearwater. The sunset was on the Gulf at Clearwater.

    Minimal post on these, so I'll keep them small, but I was excited about how well they turned out...

    My first in-focus flight shot!

    This guy posed for a long time, this is my favorite pose:

    Although this one was a close second (and a better photo):

    He let me get pretty close. Finally a boat scared him away (and my flight shots were out of frame and/or unfocused, but I tried):

    End of a nice day (even though I spent most of it working):

    Chris, I am proud of you. First, for taking a break and actually going out to shoot, and second for some very good shots. I warned you though about starting this bird shooting thing. It is fun, huh? Next thing I know, you'll have a 500 f4 and be out shooting with Harris, Harry, Gale, and Steve. :biggrin:

    Chris,

    Great shots.. Very beautiful with the perfect light at sunset.

    Yep it is totally addictive. I don't know why but it is.

    Keep up the good work.
