    Airic's got mitten!
    Take him as your example, Raymond, will you?
    So you must no longer sacrifice the tips of your fingers for the sake of these photos ;) ;) ;).
    Though the outcome of your bird photography pays you back thousandfold, so you might not mind sacrificing your fingers to this!?!? (But don't you NEED the tips of at least one finger to push the shutter release in the very right moment, such as when this one duck [?] dives in to feed?)

    All your photos are such a treat.
    Took some myself yesterday that made me think of you (if you had that funny buzz in your ear, it was me thinking of you), but OF COURSE I could only THINK of you. Never even BEGIN to copy you... will put them up later - for you to laugh :D)

    Great work Ray! That sure is a wild bird in #2. The Canada in 4 is really nice. I remember seeing them in the grass but never took the photo, wish I did. Lets hope for a few more of these days in February.

    thanks everyone! Goos light is always fun, but when I am shooting these speedy ducks, there never seems to be enough!

    Thanks Archangel .. I just wish I could get a lower angle on these birds.. I am sitting low on the concrete, but the pier is about 7 feet above the water line. I need a scuba dry suit and an inflatable tube so I can get the right angle.. not likely going to happen though!
