I never tire of photographing these guys, and they charge very little for the privledge.

I mixed these shots up, but there is one sequence taken over a period of five seconds. All the images, with the exception of the last, were taken in a twenty minute period, and there are actually three Snowy's being photographed.

With the right light, reflections from the bird onto the water, and from the water onto the bird, are always fascnating...

And yes, in this last shot, there's a Great White Egret in the background.

Lovely lighting, Dave - there's something about that late afternoon or early morning light. I see that one of Africa's Pro Wildlife photographers has gone digital after some years of fighting it, his camera of choice is theD2X

Makes sense on the D2x, although of coure there are trade-offs. Not the lack of FF of course. A wildlife photographer wants all the pixels they can get. But for the Canon Mark II 1Ds to match the amount to pixels On Target, it would have to have a 26 MP sensor instead of the 16 that it does.

The D2 x is less tolerant of underexposure than the Canon - But, what the heck - Do it right and it's not a problem.
