BIRDS AS ART NOTES

ON MY WAY TO NANPA
I will be driving to Destin tomorrow with Robert O’Toole a day early to work with the College Scholarship students and then attending the NANPA Summit. Please be sure to drop by the booth—right next to Canon’s—and say, “Hi.” Bring your D-SLRs; we are offering free sensor cleaning. Hope to see you there.

Judd Patterson's Moon Trails in Out of the Box is a tribute to creativity: http://birdphotographers.net/forums/showthread.php?t=5890
And in Wildlife, Peter Delaney's Mountain Zebra depicts an extremely rare animal in amazing light: http://birdphotographers.net/forums/showthread.php?t=5800

Canon 500mm f/4
L IS lens with the EOS-1Ds Mark III. ISO 400. Evaluative metering +1 1/3
stops: 1/30 sec. at f/4.5. Gitzo 3530 LSV CF tripod and Mongoose M 3.5 head.
Blurs are an acquired taste. I like this one for the reds and the greens in the nesting material.
Best and love and great
