    Hi Y'all,

    I hooked up with two folks from the wildlife forum I moderate and had a fine time.

    While shooting I went over my 40,000th shot mark for the year. I figure if I take enough shots by the law of average I have to come up with a few keepers.

    a tri-color chick taken with the D2X and the 70-200mm F/2.8 and a 1.4 TC

    a snowy egret chick taken with the D200 and 300mm F/4 lens and a 1.7 TC

    Wood storks making enlargements to the family room taken with the D2X and the 70-200mm 2.8 lens and a 1.4 TC

    The "happy" wood stork couple, if you look carefully below them you can see a chick popping its head up. Taken with the D200 and the 300mm F/4 lens and a 1.7 TC

    a trio of tri-color chicks making their plans for world domination. Taken with the D2X and the 70-200mm 2.8 lens and a 1.4 TC

    Its always a sad day for the parents when the chicks can follow them outside the nest. here a parent snowy egret is waylaid by its chicks on the railing of the boardwalk. Taken with the D200 and the 300mm F4 with a 1.7 TC.

    Glad you liked them Alex
     
  17. I wouldn't turn your back on those Tri chicks for very long - you are liable to get stabbed in it... (you know, the domination plan)
