    Taken during the last trip to Mono Lake (South Tufa). Was interesting to see how all the other photographers were snapping away as the sun was rising, while I took more interest in the birds. :oops: 

    DSC_8614.
     
  2. Interesting little fella! What lens did you use?

    btw, I think you'll fit in here just fine! ;)

    Thanks, guys. Taken with the 300mm f/4 AFS lens on my D70. Sucker was sunbathing in the morning and allowed me to sneak up pretty close (full frame image there :)  ).

    Eric, you did get close. You must have been no more than 15 feet away. Excellent shot. :wink:
     
  7. I would probably be one of those taking pictures of the sunrise, but I sure am glad there are people taking pictues of the birds so I can see wonderful photos like these. I love looking at the bird pictures in this forum.

    Yup. That was about how far away I was. I would have tried getting in closer, had there not been a 10 foot gap between the rocks that I was on and his. :lol:

    I was doing the same thing, but after a short while, I got tired of only shooting the sunrise and my attention drifted to the birds (funny how I found the location to shoot these pictures from by following them).

    Here's a couple for you as the sun was beginning to come up.

  11. Isn't Mono Lake an interesting site. Cute little birdie you caught in the morning light.

    Yes, it is. If only it were closer.
