  1. Came upon a flock of Cedar Waxwings and just happened to have my 300mm f2.8 lens attached to my D2H. I was pretty excited as we don't see these often here in the desert.

  3. Oh, man, you're killing me. Here I am pining for my camera and new lens,
    and you're showing off your drop dead pictures :cry: .

    Fantastic captures, Gordon.
  4. Thanks Craig I appreciate your comments. The sky here in the desert is really that blue.

    Uncle Frank I feel your pain. If you lived close I would let you borrow my D100 as it is feeling lonely through disuse. Thanks for your comments. I was able to get up close and fill the frame with these beautiful little birds.

    What wonderful pictures!

    Wow, the colors are fantastic too.. (that's the kind of blue sky I'd like to learn how to get)

    Do those blue skies only come in St. George? I don't see them like that here in Florida :lol:

    Great job and I always enjoy your posts and your pictures!

  8. WOW Gordon!! Way to go!! Excellent shots. :)  :)  :)  :) 
  9. Deep blue skys are a phenomenon of places with low humidity and that pretty much says the west here in the USA. Desert areas are especially good for clear skies and lots of stars at night. Sorry about that. :(

  11. I do shoot birds occasionally but as a regular staple I prefer people. Thanks for your comments Frank.
