Little Estero Island Critical Wildlife Area
Fort Myers Beach, Florida USA
I met Frank, from Quebec, whom told me he was shooting with a Nikon D300
and 600mm lens on the tripod. He said he's been birding for a couple years.
I failed to inquire of him what was on his shoulder (note it's powered on). I overheard a fellow
guest to the venue ask Frank why he had his gear set on VR with it on the tripod and he
pointed out a setting on the lens which negated the feature. Frank had his camera directed
toward a Long-billed Curlew which we were both observing for the first time.
In looking at this image again after nearly a year (14 DEC 2009), I see that Frank
is shooting portrait style which I hadn't noticed before. I'll have to ask him about that
and why he wasn't in the water when I see him again.
I just heard from Frank (DEC 2010) indicating that he will be in the SW Florida area to start
the 2011 year. If you haven't seen his awesome work, be sure to do so here . . .
