South summer swell in town came up and it was the first chance I had in a long while to shoot one of my favorite subjects and the reason I just had to get a 600L just like all the other surf photog pro's had so I could at least fake it like I knew what I was doing.

Took a trip to see family in the US Virgin Islands. Saw a Kestrel really close up as it was sitting on a tree in a graveyard nearby and there are loads of Grey Kingbirds around. The other interesting bird I've yet to capture is called Scaly-naped Pigeon. Got several weeks to see about capturing it in camera.

Went to Phantasea Botanical Gardens on St Thomas, USVI. Used my 40mm handheld for most of the shots (these are my faves) and my daughter had her 100-400mm Sigma for the birds, but the foliage was super dense so it was very dark for birds in flight. We did get some pictures of the Green Mango hummingbird and Bananaquit birds in the flight, but yeah, too much grain.
