    The dial up here is a blazing 28 kbps, and getting all this done is a task!! but it keeps me out of the heat and humidity. I am experimenting with my 200-400 for close ups, my 18-70 for street photography, the 105 sigma for macro, and learning lots!!

    Here are a few, lots more in the link below., I am not doing too well with the birds.. the few that are around here are skittish like crazy, so check out the link for the rest of the stuff!

    the shooting data/exif is below each shot in my pbase gallery, and more to come as this weekend I am visiting a rain forest, north west of Manila with Romy Ocon, at a place called Subic.

    Hello Ray,
    Great photos, 2,3,4 Very clear.

    I can relate with you about the 35 hour flight. Only it's 24 hours for us but still the same it's long. We fly into Manila and then drive 4 hours to San Jose.

    35 hour trip???!!! [​IMG]

    Wonderful shots, as always. I always like the look of kingfishers, and that dragonfly is sharp and detailed. The 2 shots of the other bird are also beautifully sharp and nicely composed (with that hint of red from the flowers).

    Hope you have a great trip to the rainforest...fascinating places just teeming with bird, animal, reptile and insect life.
