I am heading home to New Jersey in the early morning and I can’t wait! It has been a very long month and I am exhausted. When I get home I immediately head to Lonaconing Silk Mill for a 2 day workshop in Maryland. On my last couple of days in Florida I co-led an in-the-field workshop at Ft De Soto with Arthur Morris, gave a presentation at the Orlando Camera Club and photographed a young Sandhill Crane colt at Indian Lake Estates with Dick Curtin. Dick attended the recently concluded Tampa Seminar and the in-the-field workshop.
During our time at Ft. De Soto we photographed the usual Florida birds along with a couple of special treats for me, a Long-billed Curlew and a Reddish Egret white morph in beautiful breeding plumage. Afterwards we took the group to Don CeSar’s Sea Porch restaurant in St. Pete Beach for a great lunch.
Over the last few weeks I have photographed with the Canon 800mm lens, new 500mm lens, new 600mm lens and I have to say they are all fantastic. It is really hard to choose which one I prefer but I decided on the Canon 600mm lens mostly because it suited my needs. I think it will be a great compliment to my lens line-up.
