Ok, so this is just getting ridiculous now. I found another rare warbler yesterday, Worm-eating Warbler! Very uncommon for Wisconsin. I even got to watch it take a bath! Today was insane, 99 species and 26 warbler species!!! Tonight's weather could create fallout conditions for the morning too, fingers crossed.

:ROFLMAO:!
No problem:)!!! You can do it again and again (well, at least when there are some birds around you: photos are very nice, the birds are interesting...) I think I can enjoy your "ridiculousness" any time :)

I agree with you about the second photo but I like also the complete story: Jeremy is telling us about his excitement from the encounter and I like it! It's not just about one (or few - doesn't matter actually) photo! It's about the encounter and how he feels about it (and this is may be more important than a single or several perfect photos: we go out for the fun and the excitement from such encounters, well I believe most of us?!).

Yes, I understand perfectly the purpose of the series, I totally agree with what you said.

I just mentioned that I really like the second picture, this does not take anything away from this series.

Of course, I'm having a blast out there, just meant it's been so crazy! Yesterday was the best day I've ever had in my life!!! At Warnimont Park in Milwaukee, I had 141 species and 31 different warblers! I spent the entire day out there, almost 13 hours and walked a little over 7.5 miles. I didn't want it to end. #140 & #141 for the day, just happened to be two rare birds for our state. Northern Mockingbird and Blue Grosbeak. Great way to end an amazing day. Oh, almost forgot, I took 5760 photos!!! 7D mkll / EF600 F4 ll / 1.4x lll

How do you carry the 600mm f/4 II?

I mostly use a carbon fiber tripod and just throw it over my shoulder. 18lbs with everything, for 13 hours made for a long day! I'm a pipefitter though, so it's really nothing for me to do. I do handhold it, but only when lighting is good or for BIF.

I'm impressed!

I believe he is also younger than us Alan!
I still (!:)) remember the times when I was cruising the mountains with 18-25 kg backpack - for 4-5 days (well, in the course of the "cruising" it's getting lighter). Almost total wilderness... :)
