This was the opening morning of the shoot. We headed out on pontoon boats to capture shots of Ospreys

It was a beautiful morning with a wonderful group of friends.

Fantastic! I grew up on the water near Clearwater, Florida, so I am partial to great blue herons! All the shots are great! I look forward to more.

What a fantastic series - really makes me want to go back to Florida. My first visit several years ago was amazing to me, and your images are even more so.

Thanks fastrout,
The others are still traveling, but the shooters from NG will be adding their shots as they get home and get them processed.

It was a wonderful 4 days of shooting.... but we are all exhausted from the outing.... we were up everyday by 4 am and didn't get done until well after dark.

But we sure got a lot of images to show for it.

Cheers, joe
