Of course I DIDN'T have my gigabit card. Left that at home. heavy sigh. Left off the 2x teleconverter because it wouldn't autofocus. grrr! AND put the 70-300 on. However, I did have my 256 card. success! Not that it makes a diff on the photos. I had to go to manual. Again. Could I remember the settings. Um....NOOOOOOOOOOO! All I could remember was the ISO needed to be 200. Couldn't remember the aperature. REALLY heavy sigh. So I approached a photographer that had "ALL THE GEAR". Asked him. Just GOT the camera didn't know. Wasn't thinking about it. REALLY REALLY HEAVY sigh. So I faked it. AND with the use of my favorite photo shop software. I GOT THIS. Wooo HOO!!!.
Also got a Rosiate Spoonbill (according to dh) in flight. Soaring over head, being admired as all the cameras that went off. Also had a gator posing as well. DH said that it was a mechancial gator w/a camera on for survellience. snort. He came on shore and posed for pictures. It was funny really just bobbin around and turning toward the crowd. He had the poser thing down and no one was in danger as there was a DITCH between him and us. I was further up the hill not being impressed as I have them out in our canal. smirk.
