Default Loxahatchee / Wakodahatchee

What a difference a week makes. Friday before had much activity, this Friday activity was low. One good sign in Loxahatchee was the Hawks I followed the nest of earlier this year were in the same clump of trees.

Fantastic shots, Ed!
would you mind if I take a stab at a little PP just for fun, on the RS Hawk?

No problem. Lets see what you can do. I did not consider it a good shot, just evidence the Hawks are back in the nesting area.

Hi Ed,

Great series!!!

You're definitely taking advantage of the K-5's ability to shoot clean at higher ISO. This gives a lot more flexibility in shutter speed and aperture in bright sunlight, so it's a lot easier to get the most out your lens while cutting the effects of subject motion.

This is the thing I'm looking forward to the most when things warm up here. . .it's going to be a long 3-4 months. . .but I'll find some other ways to amuse myself in the meantime.

Nice, Ed. The camera is sure working out nice for you.

Lou and I went out last Monday to see what we could find at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Didn't see much. Mostly just ducks. And, it was supposed to be in the 50's, but I swear it was in the 30's. Dang cold. We finally just gave up.
