My first post on here. Not my best photo but first time shooting Sandhills. This was taken from several hundred feet. It was quite a site seeing and hearing them fly into this field for a few hours, then off they go. There were maybe a thousand or so. Going back in 3-4 weeks. Should be up to 20,000 by then. They gather in this area on their migration south for the winter.

Added one:

Pretty shot of the Sandhills... the light is very nice as well as the detail in the feathers... well done.

The title "Jasper-Pulaski Refuge" caught my attention and jarred my memory back to the 60s... I accompanied a group of high school students & my biology teacher friend to Jasper... long time ago.... :) Great spot.

Welcome to POTN...

Close, it was the sunrise. They had just come out of a ditch right in front of them. I guess they spent the night there. We were there before sunrise.

Last year J-P was my first stop after getting my new 40D and 70-200 2.8. It was a great day! Now I'm hoping to make it back with my new 1Ds II and my wife's 100-400 this year.
Be careful it could get under your skin and end up costing you a lot of money. :)
Enjoy!

I've spent enough on lenses in the last year. It will be awhile before more come my way, but they will.

I might very well be there that weekend. I'm the guy with a wood tripod and Leica lenses on a Canon body. I think you can outgun me, but I'll give it a run for the money! :D ps, you won't need the camo, they couldn't care less.

Very cool a wood tripod dont see that very often anymore, and you have nice glass thats for sure. I know the birds dont care bout the camo but I just think it looks cool.;)
