Real nice work on an extremely difficult bird to expose properly. I'll bet it was fun taking shots of this one. My favorite, actually, is the one that is slightly in shadows as the mood it evokes is attractive to me.

Lovely shots. I agree with normcar, the 4th shot looks magical.

Normcar, Dennis and Bobbyz thanks for looking in and commenting. I was quite proud of these myself andreally didenjoy taking them although I almost didn't post the darker one #4 as I thought it might be too dark. What some folks don't like other ones do............

Norm I read your post to Jake about not having his camera with him and I thougt I would pass this on to anyone interested about what I do. My camera is in my truck all the time but I was worried about the heat so I purchased a soft zip up cooler at Walmart for about $12.00. It measures about 10 X 14 and about 12 in high with a couple of Zip up pockets on the outside where I put flash cards, batteries etc. With some soft rags inside it works out perfect for me to have most of my stuff with me at all times.

Good idea, Houston, but it's not really the heat that I'd be worried about. The heat would be chasing down what I'd be more worried about. One good wrenching and that trunk is open to share with the world. :-)

I do usea soft plastic picnic cooler from Wal-mart to keep my cameras in on hot days, so I agree with you on the technical aspect, it keeps the machine nice and cool.
