Since my first day spotting this bird I’ve been challenged in capturing its bright white features and grateful for the numerous occasions I’ve had to work those issues out. Over a few weeks this summer, almost every day I’ve observed what I believe to be the same Great Egret. More often than not, patiently plodding through […]Read more "White Winged; Great Egret Compilation"

And I expect soon to know much more about the reptiles I hope […]Read more "Swamp Log Part II; Spring Motion"
Well I’ve finally begun to upgrade my gear, and I’m stoked to be shooting with the 7D MkII, paired with the 70-200 f/2.8L. Shooting birds requires some serious hustle, but I’m starting to get used to the AF tracking system, and the control layout. The results have been decent so far, for only taking it […]Read more "New Journeys"
