amazing capture! #132481

Charles R. Frey 5/28/2004 9:42:21 AM

Indeed a nice capture. Got the bird in perfect form. The light really shows good detail also. #564608

James R. Jackson 5/28/2004 10:13:01 AM

Todd and Charles, I appreciate the compliments. I agree that the lighting was just about perfect to show the feather (and other) detail, and I was lucky to catch him (or her) sailing instead of flapping. Thanks again!

James R. Jackson 6/15/2004 2:42:39 PM

Cathy, thanks so much! When I saw him/her/it approaching, I prayed it would pass right over. I had the camera in "sports mode" and just kept shooting. I couldn't have asked for better lighting either! Thanks again! Jay
