Florida Birds Base Camp
With Fay safely moving away and hurricane season coming to an end, we think it’s safe to set our spring Base Camp. It will be based out of Ft Myers, FL (16-20, Feb ’09) and its photographic focus will be birds like those on Sanibel Island, Ft Myers Beach, Venice Rookery and Corkscrew Swamp. Some folks were so excited to join us, they registered before we even had a confirmed location or dates so there are only 5 spots available.
The photo above of a Roseatte Spoonbill was taken earlier this spring in FL, St Pete to be exact and is an example of the great bird photography Florida offers. You can see more examples in the current issue of the BT Journal (as well as a 12pg article on the subject) and if that wasn’t enough, you can watch the photography unfold in our newly posted Bird Photography video. Dang, all this bird photography talk gets me all hot to shoot and right now. Gotta go!
