A Break in the Festivities

I really don't have the equipment for this type of shooting, the focus with my 100-300mm is way too soft at 200-300mm.

That said watching this egret hunt was fun. He was a bit prissy. Any waves that reached his knees caused him to run away or flutter up into the air. Some sea bird.

I find that if I switch to manuel focus it is much much sharper when using the high end of my lenes. Just a thought :) It's a nice shot, I like the description "prissy" made me giggle.

I am thinking about making it down to Monterey next week. Sometime between Wednesday and Thursday. Want to check out the coast, get some shots like these!

I am no good at bird photography but I do love to observe their behavior. Your beautiful wing shot really gives us an idea of how large this bird is.

They are a joy to watch.

So does this mean you're in the market for a longer lens? Maybe that boy of yours will have to be the jealous one for awhile.
