Birger, Harris, and I met at the West Palm Beach zoo today. Shot a few animals, showed off our new gear, and talked about you guys ;-). Harris and Birger shot with 70-200VR lenses, and while Harris was kind enough to bring along his 300/4AFS for me to try out, I mostly stayed with my 85/1.4 and d200. And I mostly shot people! Birger's beautiful daughter, her husband, and two granddaughters were in attendence, so I had models aplenty . His smallest granddaughter is following in her grandpa's footsteps...
