Hey Harry,

Welcome aboard. What interesting photos! Great saturated colors. I particularly like the 2nd and 3rd photos. The second is just great. The third, I like, because I don't typically think of wood storks in this fashion.

James

The second is publising material for certain, with the others being "wow!" regardless. Really, really nice stuff! I need to take a trip there with that as the sole intent! Early-mid March - right! is is Spring Break down there though?

Also - fascinated that these were with the 70-200 VR. Mine just arrived yesterday - woo hoo! I'm broke:(

Question - what mode are you using the VR on for these shots?

Thanks!


-Chris

Wow Harry,
Welcome aboard, and nice entrance. They are all great shots, but Ill have to agree with the others, No. 2 is the best.


Thanks, Jeff

Thanks Chris. The VR was in "normal" mode. The rookery in St. Augustine is a fantastic place for bird shots from March through late May. Great, snowy and cattle egrets nest there as well as tri-color and little blue herons, and wood storks. You don't need extreme reach there either. Most of my shots are at 160mm through 320mm. The Alligator Farm is extremely photographer friendly also. They allow photographers to stay and shoot in the rookery until 7PM even though the park officially closes at 5PM.
