Newport, OR, pelagic trip, part2 (08/08/09)

There are some pix. These would be the runts of the set, but nevertheless new birds.

A few Buller’s Shearwaters were mixed in with the large flock of Pink-foots.

ForkTailedStormPetrels

Pretty much all of my Fork-tailed Storm-Petrel shots were “soft” (i.e. they sucked).

Finally, a Pomarine Jaeger sporting a nice spoon. Enough for now.

Obsessed with birding, I started taking a pictures in '01 after a brief personalized intro by the incomparable David LaPuma. In July '09, I acquired a Canon EOS 50D with a 100-400mm IS lens to be able to shoot the fast-moving lbjs that were so difficult before. In Dec '14, I upgraded my body to a Canon 7D Mark II and immediately noticed a big improvement. Nevertheless, I'm first and foremost a birder, then a photographer.
