How Apropos – 10.22.07

Well, after a great weekend celebrating the wedding of our dear friend Dave Moser, a great morning with our first visit to NAPP headquarters, Sharon & I & the D3 headed to Honeymoon Island to shoot. Started off with a very cooperative Roseatte Spoonbill. Than a fishing Snowy Egret cruised on by. And just as the sun was heading down for the last count, this Short-billed Dowitcher came up to say hello.

This was my first time to get out and shoot wildlife with the D3 and man, does it ever deliver! The image detail still just blows my socks off, you can count the barbs on the feathers. The metering nailed all the exposures for every situation and the sound of the motordrive, well I’m playing it right now. I have the D3 & 14-24AFS for a couple of weeks. I’m just starting a new project so once it’s done and I’ve shot more with the D3, I’ll post images and updates as I can.
