FEBRUARY 25, 2008




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.




Apologies to Judd and to Peter for the incorrect links in yesterday’s BAA Bulletin 256.   Below are the correct links.  (Must have been working too hard and too long…)


Judd Patterson's Moon Trails in Out of the Box is a tribute to creativity


And in Wildlife, Peter Delaney's Mountain Zebra depicts an extremely rare animal in amazing light:


BirdPhotographers.Net/It Ain't Just Birds (www.BirdPhotographers.Net) has quickly become the number one educational and critiquing web site on the planet and continues to improve.  A quick visit to any of the galleries will reveal that our philosophy of "honest critiques done gently" and leading by example are succeeding quite well. (If you are a first time visitor, you will be prompted to register.  Registration is free.)  Folks who will be using our image hosting services or otherwise wish to support our efforts are invited to become members by clicking here:  Though membership is free up until April 1, 2009, more than 375 folks have already shown their support for BPN by joining as members ($20 annually).  




Brandt’s Cormorant w/nesting material, blur,  La Jolla, CA

Image Copyright 2008:  Arthur Morris/BIRDS AS ART


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 picture-making to all,
