Took my new 600 II out for a test drive this evening. Still shooting handheld, a little more challenging than the 500, but not by much.

Nice one Bill. They are certainly a beautiful raptor.

Thanks Mike, a distant shot.

We made four trips to Corkscrew but came up empty. Which made it even sweeter because we had lost hope.

Thank you L.D.. They are one of my favorites... for the color and the fact that they seem to be a bit rarer then many of the other Egrets/Herons.

That is a great shot. It's cool to see how the bottom can be seen wherever the bird shadow hits the water.
