Likewise, to all the members of POTN

Well I was scheduled for Harris-Neck NWR this coming off week for Wood Storks....just got the e-mail from the planning committee that OK's travel (any travel out of our zone) that
I am not allowed to travel. So we'll head to the cabin....still winter up there.

I gave my camera to my boy Sam to run around and take some shots. I thought he had a pretty good eye for this one. This was not posed. He saw the shot and took it. Very nice use of the "rule of thirds".

I almost stepped on this guy!!! I didn't hear it but I guess it was rattling like crazy. Sam heard it and saved my life!!:lol: Heavy crop of course....

Love all of these. The first is brilliant concept pulled off very well.
The last! Just a gorgeous serpent! I've only ever found one and right before dark (crummy pic), an Eastern Diamondback.

He didn't like me getting in close for the pic and struck at me...such an attitude!

I'm guessing AF is good as long as centre or close to centre AF point used?

I don't remember which points I was using....surely it was Center. I'll be shooting with it Wednesday so I can double check
if I remember.
The 400/5.6 is not quite as sharp as the DOii it sits beside but I'll grab the 5.6 nine times over to save the weight and get the
maneuverability.

One from last year at Pt. Reyes. Marin parks got flooded by more visitors than the height of summer last Saturday, resulting in Marin County shutting down all parks and beaches

Another Spoon from the second Florida trip couple of weeks ago when I was testing the
Riv+200600G with Tracking Sensitivity set to 5. You'd drive 8 hours to check a setting wouldn't you?

Nice photo, Robert. I believe the snake is actually a timber rattler, aka, canebrake rattler. Lived around them for 17 years and we crossed paths numerous times.

Agree, Timber Rattlesnake. They are good looking critters.

Still trying to train my eye to look for smaller scenes in a vast landscape...my brain always wants to go full wide and big...but that doesn't always work. These ripples and shadows caught my eye in a section of undisturbed sand.

Seeing the blue tone in the shadows, I was somehow reminded of Zane Grey's "Riders of the Purple Sage".

I like it very much. I would have cropped that black side on the left. When I was there a yr ago, I was also more interesting in the sand patterns. It was with family so not much time shooting. Need to start going there every so often like some of my coworkers do.

that little tint is my editing...just adding a little more to the shadows. I am not familiar with that reference, will have to go look it up.

In reality, I didn't see it when I shot it, I should have moved to not include that...and I looked at cropping it, but for me it brought that scrub too close to the left edge and ruined the lines coming from the bottom left corne...I also thought about cloning it out, but decided to leave it. Should have noticed it in the field...I typically am looking at the edges and corners but on this one in the field I paid too much attention to the top of the original frame...only to crop it out entirely in post. That left that spot there...oh well.
