Good Evening

I guess for most the weekend has or is getting ready to kick off! Enjoy, I am sure you all worked hard this week and need the break! Wink Well, I am still in California and the only shot I have taken is of a rail car riding past my hotel window and believe me that is not exciting! So back to the archives, here is another shot of my favorite bird, the Great Blue Heron. This shot was taken in Savannah, Georgia two weeks ago. This is another shot that is almost full frame, cropped maybe about 3% in order to get the size down to meet the 200 kb file size.

The good news is that my meeting was canceled for Friday and if the weather permits I might actually get out and be able to take some shots. Not sure I will be able to go far, so might try to get into some candid or check out some architectures, who knows, I guess what ever presents itself! I fly back on Saturday and I cant wait, I miss my daughter and wife a lot! You all have a great and fortuitous weekend!

Greg

Hey Greg, glad to hear you had a chance to shoot up the town. Ya, trains are a puzzle I haven't solved yet either. Acharr had a good one awhile back. Of a boxcar anyway.

I'll see your blue heron and raise you a white heron!
