That's it. Tomorrow is the first day in about a month that it won't be in the teens or lower in the morning. With temps in the 40s this week the ice will be breaking up on the rivers. Time to try and get some good duck pictures before they disperse. Even if I have to stand in knee deep snow to get them.

Yep, it's going up in the (f) 50's tomorrow and my bet is that we're done with frozen precipitation. It's had its moments but I'm ready to move on.

Very nice work here.
Here's a recent of mine.

Short-Eared Owl

Excellent catch, Rex.

It was a nice day out with above zero temperature. I went out to a local trail to check out the birds but didn't see much except this woodpecker on my way back to the parking lot.

This was one of the first wildlife photographs I had taken with the Ist DS after that I started to use the DS over the ME & ME Super for wildlife.

I love photography, but I don't make enough money out of it to justify $8000 on a lens!

So lucky me got a 645z to try out for the next two weeks. I am busy doing a trip to the West Coast, Agulas and Karoo national parks over the two weeks.


A few testing the 645 fa 400 5.6















Great shots Philip. I look forward to your posts from this trip.

What, I should worry about the current exchange rate for a lens I won't buy? You're right, the government and reserve bank have succeeded in lowering the exchange rate in favour of the USD. Wish I could have visited the USA again before it happened!
