Fight Club ? It's still alive?
Thought maybe you'd opted for prostate runs to Bangkok instead of spreading yr angst on Lamma.
If you are......... beware of those lady bugs over there.......

Nice photos Leggova, although I think you'll have L-G stomping all over you to put them in "Pets".

Thanks Leggova.......... was a tough one to get without blowing out the whites & keeping the detail, on what I recall was a fairly bright day.

I'm curious how you managed to keep as much detail as you did on the white feathers ... looks almost impossible to me if you had difficulties with bright light. Was this with the D70?

A friend of mine just bought a D200 ... a stunning piece of technology, although horribly expensive. His D70 started locking up due to some sort of firmware problem.

Chuck, was with Nikon D200 w/Nikkor 300mm F/4 D w/1:7 converter.
Sun was already fairly high overhead at 09:09
Focal Length: 500mm
Exposure Mode: Aperture Priority
Metering Mode: Multi-Pattern
1/400 sec - F/6.7
Exposure Comp.: -0.3 EV
Sensitivity: ISO 200
Optimize Image: Normal
White Balance: Auto

Used Multi pattern metering coz even though the background is darker, there was enough reflected light on the leaves to have an impact on the photo........ so set the exposure at -0.03 to underexpose.
I did have a number of shots that overexposed in places on the Cattle Egret depending on the posture of the bird so these settings were very very marginal.
The proper setting should I guess have been to spot meter on the white bird & underexpose slightly, but I was happy enough with these settings.
