    It was too cool today.. a buddy told me about a flock of waxwings in some Mulberry Bushes, but it was poring rain out... of course, I went anyways!

    the first 8 here are the best of 380.. D200 / 200-400VR, hand held, no flash, exif below each shot.

    Ray - the pictures are beautiful. I love how the berries add colour.

    No doubt. You really got some nice captures there. Is it hard to get birds to stay still while you're composing?

    Oh yes, our Ray here is one of our absolute bird-photography experts.
    In rainy weather not ONE photo would work out for me. NOT ONE!
    Add to this the fact that whenever I go out all I ever manage to do is HEAR the birds ... but I never even see them, let alone get my lens to find them ... suddenly I hear wings and then: silence. Bird long gone! That's ME when I try to photograph birds. Not so Sir Raymond! ;)

    Sweet shots Ray. These guys have been pretty reclusive for me and I have only seen a few. Good to see someone so dedicated they head out in poor weather.

    thanks you guys, it was fun shooting in the rain, but I don't like getting my equipment wet.

    Thanks Airic for organizing the meet-up today, it was great to see everyone.
