Thanks Larry,
Your words of praise are much appreciated and I'm especially proud of both 
my eagle and hummingbird pictures.
Hummers are frankly harder to shoot because they move so fast. Others seem 
to like them too as prints are
selling quite well at my show in Vancouver. And Miss O is going to be joined 
by a little brother in January so
there will be more opportunities there as well. :-)
Thanks again.

Hello Luggers,
I went down to the Stand at the Otter Bay Ferry Terminal early this 
morning hoping the fog would burn off and we could call the eagles and 
I could add to my eagle pictures.
The fog cleared a bit and we called the eagles but they didn't come. 
The seagulls were in abundance - hoping to snatch some food before the 
eagles claimed it - and so I made do with
the wheeling seagulls instead. Here are two pictures - taken with the 
70 - 200 F2.8 VR II on the D800E - processed and cropped to about 1/3 
in CS6.



Please look large. C&C always welcome.

of fog than ever before recorded)

The pictures of the seagulls are excellent. However I took the 
opportunity to examine the rest of the pictures that came up in the LUG 
gallery and I am very impressed. It is rare that you see see bird 
pictures with both clarity and action. Your eagle pictures are truly 
great. And I must say, you have a very cute and picturesque 
granddaughter. A little princess!.
