Yesterday we had a rare treat for the group, something that we not only exciting it we just awesome in every way you can think of. Dad, being Dad basically, knowing so much of the birds species down here and having spent so much time photographing the various spieces has come to meet some friendly people. Those people happen to bring other people out to a certain island where the bird photography is just amazing. The Roseate Spoonbill is by far one of the high lights of the day. The shear number of the birds showing up along with the incredible flights shoots being displayed at point blank range just gave for awesome shooting
Now you might be saying to yourself well geez this sounds pretty easy take a boat out there and get great shots, well let me tell you it was work. With a group of 10 people and 2 boats approaching a flock of birds wasn’t easy, nor was standing in Tampa Bay for a few hours which actually wasn’t bad once adjusted to the temperature. The true challenge like any critter is moving as a group. Got to slowly move one at a time. One person moves then the next one up to that one, then the next. Real simple, keeps from anything flushing. The island was great, lots more to blog but it’s 3 am and i’m wiped.
