    Hi you'll,

    Today was a sad day in the Viera Wetlands. We had prepared a large welcome for Gordon but he took ill the day before he was to fly down and couldn't come.

    The whole gang was waiting for Gordon
    41852357-L.

    This red-shouldered hawk was so excited he fell of his perch
    41852358-L.

    This guys brought fish to the party
    41852376-L.

    41852359-L.

    snowys from far and near flew in
    41852371-L.

    you can see the excitement on this soft shelled turtle's face
    41852362-L.

    this ibis was getting all duded up
    41852366-L.

    these guys made their first appearance this season in anticipation of Gordon's arrival

    a northern shoveler
    41852373-L.

    a greater yellowlegs
    41852368-L.

    Feel better Gordon and get your butt down here.

    Very nice series, Harry. Can't wait til I get to shoot with you guys up there too! PS, Harris says you can handhold the 500 w/no problems. Really?

    Hey Harris,

    Gordon is safe from eagle pics right now, can't promise what will happen over the weekend though. The only eagles we saw Thursday were too far away to shoot.

    Thank you Dave.
     
  17. Sorry, Gordon, that you couldn't make it. :frown: Promise to do my best to get some good shots on your behalf. :tongue: Mike~there's still flights coming into Orlando that would get you here on time!

    Wonder if Wilma caused a bunch of southern birds to come visit Viera for a while.

    Should be a fun weekend. The weather's supposed to be perfect!!! :Smoking:
