Flight Photography and More in Florida

I have been reviewing my older photographs that I had taken and editing them.  The last batch I worked on were taken in Kissimmee, Florida.  I spent the afternoon with Jim Nieger on his pontoon boat.  Learning how to do hand-held bird photography with a long lens at that time I was utilizing a Nikon 200-400 mm f/4 lens.  Jim has perfected this technique and teaches it in his flight school.http://www.flightschoolphotography.com/FSP%20Current%20Workshops.htm
Here is a series of photographs that I took of birds that were in flight and or were perched.
