Okay guys, here I am trying to catch up on all you've posted over the last 3 weeks, and now I'm scrolling thru all these outstanding shots that has been posted. Talk about intimidation!!!

I just was doing a quick glance thru my photo files listed as 2010 in my computer, and there are literally thousands. While none approach the quality of what I've seen so far, I will try to go thru some of them and dig out some for posting. The problem when you get my age, is that you forget most of the shots, I'll have to do some browsing thru my files. (If I shot it more than a few weeks ago, I forget about it until I see it again.)

So give me some time to review, and I'll be back and post some photos to this thread.

And last and also least, not any of my favorites for the year, but I know that Ted would be so disappointed without a few reptile shots

Good morning Steven,

Your collection of images are great reminders that equipment that was great when it was first released doesn't suddenly become "broken" by the release of newer systems.

I'm guilty of wanting the latest and greatest. Thanks for bringing me back down to Earth.

Zig

Zig said, ".......doesn't suddenly become "broken" by the release of newer systems" and I absolutely agree.

Steven, these are wonderful examples, I'm happy to see them again and thanks for adding onto the list.

Thank you Adam. That is really a compliment, especially coming from someone who has continually posted such fabulous Australian birds. I always look forward to seeing your posts.

On that particular flamingo shot, I just happened to be in the right place. This bird had been strutting around, he appeared to be the top guy, as the other birds always moved out of his way when he strolled by. He noticed me, and just stopped moving long enough to stare at me for a few seconds. That was enough to take a shot and capture the catch light in his eye. As I've often said, I'm usually more lucky than good.
