Jan 31, 2007 - Flight
oh, these canada geese, they came close :)
Jan 28, 2007 - Mallard in flight
the closest I have gotten, quite excited..I have a few more to process from yesterday but smug was down I thought..
December 24, 2006 - Sandhill crane flight
In Bosque for the day..very few decent shots; they say the numbers are the same or more of cranes and snow geese, but they're nowhere to be seen now..between Nov and Dec, the huge masses, the noise is no longer there..a little disappointing..but when they close they still look great :) just one more close-up here
December 17, 2006 - flying into the sun
an excess of light at last :)
December 3, 2006 - Canada Geese take-off - in an icy lake
I had to overexpose that to get the wings in decent exposure..they don't look so cool while sitting ,and they open up :)
November 26, 2006 - Snow geese take-off
It's quite overwhelming to see hundreds of snow geese take off at the same time - I tried here a sortof abstract with a low shutter speed to get that rush! I got some good Bosque shots today; some sandhill cranes in flight today - it was a good day, just a little cloudy, but wonderful skies - one fellow loomed in my frame and filled it and I didn't loose my cool- rather proud of that :) Hopefully I'll be in Bosque another weekend soon :))- care to join ?!

Ocotber 15, 2006 - Dove in flight
got some in a series, but so far only processed this..was quite pleased with the wing detail..
September 12, 2006 - Great blue Heron take-off
If the egret took off 2 days back, this had to follow ! And I got the EYE !!
upload time was a record few seconds! you got to love smugmug, they know what is wrong and fix it in a day :)
September 10, 2006 - Egret take-off
So maybe we have One egret :) but I got him taking off. I've always found egret exposure a little tough, this maybe my decentest so far. I'm hoping it will actually show up sometime. It's still 'in queue' in my log ! and 35 minutes later, nothing yet !so 40min record time for upload to show !
August 12, 2006 - My first hummingbird !!
Lots of pictures I was proud of today -some raptors - a hawk, a osprey; some decent macros,and these hummingbirds! and I havent processed most shots yet! After all, I was born on this day!
Photographing bugs here !
May 11, 2006 - Finally the owl in flight ! I pursued relentlessly; lost my cellphone in the process, spent an hour searching for it, found it, AND got this. Blew the sky, but WTH ?! my other OIF of today
