    Not a great day for light, but I did get some flight shots of these amazing Trumpeters... Some day, i will get great light, and a good angle on these before they head north in Febuary.

    It was about 29 deg F, 20-25 MPH winds, standing out on some rocks frezzing my a** off, and no gloves yet Airic... some guys never learn!

    Thanks for looking!

    Some guys just never learn :) Go get some gloves and a hat and some boots. It is much more comfortable then freezing your a**off. I sure would like to go back and get another crack at those Swans. Maybe next weekend. You did a great job.

    Great take-off sequence! Like you say, the light was not your friend, but even so I like the light in #9,10 & 11 :thumbup:

    "Junk"? "JUNK"?

    You must be KIDDING!!!!

    Look at my ""Woodpecker" and you see what "average" (or let's call it: bad) bird photography is like!

    "Junk" *walking away shaking head in utter disbelief!*
