    Very good series Gale. Looks like you are warming up to the new cam just fine. I can't believe that you got a Kestrel, and you top it off with a Kingfisher!! Quite a day young lady.:wink:

    Well Steve it was self preservation..or devistation..lol

    I mostly shoot center weighted. i do switch to matrix at times.
    Spot mystifys me ... hummmmm Need to learn more about that.

    thank You
    Merry Christmas..
  15. Well, Gale, I like the Otter shot the best! Maybe just because it's something different from out at Viera. Surprised you were able to get that close to get a shot. And you're right...they do move fast!!
  16. WAY TO GO GALE !!!! These are so nice. Love the pose of the first one and what a great catch of the KF with meal. Merry Christmas to you and all the best with that new camera.

    Hi Kevin,
    I was sitting in the car when the otter decided to bounce out of the pond and run across the road. He was right in front of me. lol Sure not ready for that. By The Tree.
