SW Florida Birds in Flight
Northern Sarasota Area
These half-day workshops are designed to coincide with my presentations at the Florida Camera Club Council’s conference. The group size is limited to 4 (per ½ day session) and will concentrate on getting tack sharp images of birds in flight as well as nesting or mating birds. We will be going to a rookery where you will have opportunities for wood storks, night herons, snowy egrets, great egrets, great blue herons, roseate spoonbills, and more! The group will meet before sunrise each morning at a boat ramp location provided when you arrive. We will be working off a very comfortable private pontoon boat charter and we will be shooting hand held. The water is very calm. I recommend either the 70-200mm with a 1.4 teleconverter, the 120-300mm, the 150-500mm or similar. Each session will last approximately 3 hours and the cost is $225. Sign up for the morning and afternoon session and the cost is $400. Unlike my other tours, lodging and transportation are not included in the cost.
Remember to bring a fully charged camera, plenty of memory cards, and at least one lens in the range mentioned above.
