Drinkin' coffee and uploading wedding pics I hear the unmistakable gurgle
of one of these Ran out and saw one clear the tree tops at the foothills.
Surely a scout but i'm finding it hard to contain my excitement...as this'll
mean leaves turning colors and FM'ers fallin' from the skies. Happy times!

The whole weather picture is upside down.

Hard to figure what is going to happen and when.

Thanks for sharing.

We stopped by the Isenberg Crane reserve near Lodi, CA, last week because they had Sandhill Cranes much earlier than usual as well. We saw several cranes, but most were too far off for good photos. Hope to make it back over to BdA sometime this season.

Hola, Kirkster!! Old pic with the 300 f2.8 & TC17...I'm recovering from my youngest's wedding and will be
FL challenged this season 'til THAT's paid off. Got a 300 f4 and the 70-200 and will be fine. Biggest sellers
last year were snow scene Sandhill shots taken primarily with the 70-200, so go figure! Thanks, buddy.

Hey Scott, thanks...one from the coffers I re-cropped for the occasion.
Lookin' back, the original prints were too centered. I've become more artsy fartsy of late

Hi Will. I like the crop. Very nice color and detail as well. Gearing up for fall here in New England too.

It's fall and the leaves and monkeys are falling from the sky. Great to see you on this forum Will. Hope to see some fresh sandies from you soon, but this one is super.
