2016—Flight Practice, Updated

I don’t know what happened to my earlier post  today but I obviously did something wrong so I’ll try again.  I’m back home in California but just spent two fun weeks in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas photographing birds, storms, and other critters.  These shots are from the Smith Oaks (no relation) Rookery on High Island, TX where Connie McNabb and I spent hours on a couple of different days photographing nesting great egrets and a few other species.  The sun was setting when I took these shots of a Great Egret coming in for a landing.  I took them with my Nikon Df (I took only 25 shots using the Df on this trip) and my 300mm lens with the 1.7X teleconverter.
