    Up close. I have spent two years gaining the trust of this pair.

    This one is hatching out the rest of the way as I type.

    They sure are slow to crawl out of that shell. They are soooo week the little thing has to rest a lot.

    from opera: Lens focal length: 105
    !!!!!!!!
    gaining confidence is (I think) a major understatment when your using (what I think) is a macro lens for that sort of close work!
    That is some very very impressive work there!

    now that's a beautiful and UNIQUE moment you've got captured!
    if i were you i wouldn't get the picture as good as this, because I'll be worried to lose the precious moment!

    great job DEADEYE

    The second photo is amazing. I would expect to see that in NatGeo.

    Dude..... you rock.

    Sometimes I get you and Eric confused because (I think) the two of you have each been watching a nest. I'll have to review the archives.
