    We went out to visit Dave and Kim's farm birds of prey center yesterday, and had a great beef stew ... wow! it was awesome!! Dave is a Professor at Niagara Collage, and teaches folks how to become a Chef! How can anyone go wrong being at his house for dinner!

    Also, we have started a website for Skyhunters.. very early stages, somewhat like mine. please take a sec, and have a peek...

    www.skyhunters.net

    I was itchin to get out and keep my Nikon busy, but Dave knew how cold it was outside, and kept finding some alternative plan.. until it was so dark i had to go to 1600 iso.. ugggg the noise!

    anyway, with help from Neat Image, I saved a few.. thanks again Matt!

    Man, one of these days we are going to get there in perfect weather then watch the shots. You did good Ray for such poor lighting. I bet the stew made up for the photography.

    Thanks everyone, It was so cold, and windy, and i am kneeling in the poop and mud to get these shots, and wondering if it would be worth it. They all would be junk without Neat Image.
