Gone to See Florida 2008 Road Trip Day 4: Christmas in Florida at Fort De Soto Park
Great Blue Heron at Fort De Soto County Park just outside of St. Petersburg, Florida. This image taken with a Nikon D3x and 300 mm f/2.8 VR lens. I am very impressed with the Nikon D3x camera with its 24 MP sensor.
Gone to See Florida 2008 Road Trip Day 2: Fort De Soto Park
I drove to Fort De Soto park early in the morning with a goal of photographing the sun rising through the Sunshine Skyway bridge. I then spent a few hours photographing birds at various locations at the park.
As I was driving through Yosemite Valley on the way to Curry Village to join the Nikonians group for ANPAT-8 I noticed this Red Headed Woodpecker (Northern Pileated Woodpecker). I stopped and realized that it was loading acorns in a dead tree for winter.
