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.

    Wow!! Those birds are such a treat…
    …and your capture of each one of them… as always, special and unique…
    The Snowy, looking away (breaking the (almost) mandatory head-angle-must-be-towards-you rule) has an emotional quality for me… It’s as if the bird, and the rest of us here in Florida, are looking after you as you leave us… with a saddened heart…
    In fact, it seems that all the birds are looking off in the same direction..
    Come back soon, we miss you…

    You certainly have been quite busy lately Denise. I always look forward to see what great images you post and today is no exception. Welcome back to the frigid north. Looks like we will have quite a cold weekend coming up.
