p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Florida - Day 1


As most of you have figured out by now, Mitesh, Geoff and I met up in Fl for a few days of shooting. I don't know how many shots Mitesh took, but Geoff took about 5 times what I did. Even though they are both about half my age, they managed to keep up although I had to allow longer and longer breaks each day. We did have fun, and they didn't comp[lain about my jokes too much.
So here are a few from the first day. Some are similar to what Geoff has already posted, and will probably be similar to what Mitesh posts. Did I mention we had fun?
Thanx for looking, and comment if you'd like ~ Ron

Excelent set Ron and the tri-colored heron is a beauty.

I have not seen Geoff post a snowy owl. Did he strike out in Florida as well?

Great set Ron. Even though we shoot beside each other most of the time it is still amazing how many unique shots we each come out with. I really like the mood of the Great Egret image.

And we all must remember that even though Mitesh and I may be half your age (almost) you were the one handholding a 500/4 the entire time while I used my lightweight 400DOII and Mitesh used his girly Olympus gear which he can fit in his pocket. So yes, we are glad you granted us a few breaks each day

Thankfully I wasn't after Snowy owls on this trip and managed to locate the Burrowing Owls without difficulty (helps when they put nice white stakes around every nest). I did find Snowy Egret if that counts for half points

Nice of you to take the kids to Florida Ron Way to show them what retirement can do to charge ones soul!

I am impressed with your Anhinga images, fantastic exposures, nice work 'old man'
#2 was that a confession of what you did when you went to the beach or did 'watching chicks' really have to do with birding
#3 is very cool
#5 Egret is wonderful, great moody image, lovely soft light and textures abound!
Great style points for the last two Ron, nicely done buddy.

It's always nice to meet up and shoot with a couple of buddies, and as you correctly stated- everyone comes out with unique images even though you shoot the same subjects at the same time. Lovely images, good composition and contrasts on all. I am partial to the Cattle egret in breeding plumage and the Tri-colored heron portraits.

Fantastic set, Ron! Thanks for coming along for the ride, and for helping to cover a few hundred miles of I-95 in the dead of night.

You came away with some really nice images from the wetlands, with the anhinga in 4 being my pick of the set. The tri-colored heron is also especially nice.

Always a pleasure meeting up with you, even though I do have to tolerate your non-stop jokes !

Very nice work on all of these. The chicks are always irresistible and surprisingly hard to get really nice photos of them but nice to see what you got. Where in FL?
