Just Some More Cool Bird Pics

Well now, I think that title pretty much sums it all up. 


This first shot was total dumb luck (which is the best kind to have).


I'd actually planned this next one. I had the camera set for something ultra fast motion (the lories wings are really really fast) and the manual focus set on one specific spot. It only took about 10 tries to get this:

Jim and Heather: I do have sailing listed on my profile cus I used to sail all the time out of Seward, AK. Anything from a windsurfer to a 40 footer. I still love sailing, just don't get out on the ater down here, sigh. Glad you like the birds. I need to read up on you stories down in Baja. I've a friend who's done the Bajaha a couple of times as crew.

Tundra: I wish the ones here would let me get that close. The pics you have are awesome and I'm jealous of your camera :)
