    At first he kept about a 100 yard safe zone but I wore him down.

    The Turtles Were More Wary than The Bird

    In the previous pic you can see that turtle eyeing me ( 50 yds away )and he high-shelled it leaving his bud all alone. Neither of them minded the bird it seems. :biggrin:

    I Would Stalk Him All Over The Area ...

    I guess he got hungry enough that he decided to just put up with me so he could get a meal. What a fish catching machine. I kept missing his stabs. He was letting me within 20 yards but kept flying ahead every time he got a fish 50 yards or so.

    This Guy Was A Real Hunter

    He drug me 300 yards up this little creek. He would creep around rocks and branches peering into the pools. His strike was so fast I don't think you could get it on 'film' so to speak. :big grin:

    I Finally Caught Him as He Caught One

    But I muffed it. Had the camera on CAF as I wanted to catch him flying and get a sequence and focus was wandering all over the place. And the light was bad. I tried to recover it in LR (shot in Orf) but it was blown so bad I couldn't make much of it. Any way. Got 'a' fish shot.

    Great set, thanks for sharing! I love wildlife photography. Which lens did you use?

    Hi. Thanks. I was using the 75/300 hand held. I should have been using at least a monopod but I just find them so cumbersome when moving around a lot. Lame, I know.

    These were also my first shots in RAW with this camera and I'm not very good at PP. Need some schooling and lots of practice. :biggrin:

    Nice shooting! You've got some patience. Love the one with the squirrel.

    Thanks. Could not believe my good fortune when he scampered into the frame. Now if only I could have gotten one or the other in focus. :tongue:
