Great images John

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"As for Marco Island, having spent some time there a couple of weeks ago, I can't think of many places that I'd rather be-except perhaps in the Keys.

Thanks Zig and Fishguy.

This was my first trip to Marco - really gorgeous place. I still prefer the caribean / Cancun just because of the beautiful water. Somehow the gulf just isn't the same. But it was my 2 1/2 year old son's first trip to a beach / swimming pool and he had a blast.

No thanks. I like the idea of showing up at an event, planning on being there for only and hour and a half and knowing I can come away with 100 quality photos. Shooting on a beach isn't bad because:

a) I'm soaking up sun

b) it's a target rich environment.

This 'sport' is too frustrating for me - a bald eagle passed by just out of range - if I only had about 800mm I might have gotten a shot. As it was, it took 3 days of my morning walk for one of the Ospreys to fly close enough with a catch to get some decent shots of it. Would have loved to get shots of them fishing but they were too far out to sea.

All in all, it's a nice way to pass time on the beach but I'll leave the trudging through rain forests and waiting / looking for hours for the chance at a shot up to you guys :G
