Did you go on their Hawk expedition? I wanted to go, but had a long day the day before, and getting up at 6 to make a 7:30 hike wasn't happening. I ended up going to Longwood Gardens instead. And although it was windy, the sky was the deepest blue and the clouds the whiteist white I've ever seen. A really perfect day to shoot. I'll have pics up on my image site soon..

If you think birds are challenging, try shooting squids. I will be posting some squid pics soon. I go out with my FZ and a bottle of Old Grand Dad... Shhhhh! Be vewy, vewy quiet.... I'm shooting squids.

Some good shots there Bob, I have been trying to get squirels and birds and it is WORK! We have hundreds of squirrels in our yard with many huge old trees but those little buggers see you coming even when you're trying to hide!

I did get some great shots of a grasshopper yesterday, he and I had a one on one session and I got 40 shots of him with different settings, playing with auto bracketing and manual focus as opposed to auto focus, tried different lighting angles and exposures too...I'm having fun and it looks like YOU are too...

Keep up the GOOD work!

The trick with shooting boids is, you need to find the kind that move slowly and don't fly too well. Helps, too, if they're in a zoo.
