These are my first attempt at birding while on a short vacation in SW Florida.

I am humbled by the amount of skill and patience it takes to get decent shots of birds. It certainly isn't easy, but it is enjoyable. A few more days to go down here, hoping to get out more.

I also want to thank "Wallace River" for answering my locations questions and making suggestions for a novice like me.

These were taken with 7D / 70-300L combo.


Taken at 10,000 Islands NWR:

When I look at your shots I see a clarity and a light that seems to shine through with the 7D and 70-300L Great Work. ......Ian is very skilled and you won't go wrong with his advice!!

Great series! Love the three Ibises in a row shot. Was one of them counting cadence?
Thanks for sharing.

You got some great shots there! If these are your beginner shots, I can hardly wait to see what you're doing in a year :)

I appreciate all the kind remarks. There are very talented bird photographers on POTN, and this is a great forum to learn from. I have a *long* way to go yet....
