East African Birds, a set on Flickr.

Well, 2 1/2 years after we finished our INCREDIBLE Kenya/Tanzania trip, I finally managed to finish editing the BIRDS from the trip (sooo many other animals to still do!) Here they are… 99 of the best bird shots by Mrs D and I. Shot at the time with the Canon 50D and the Rebel XTi. on the 50D I had the 100-400 and on the Rebel XTi we had the 70-200 2.8 with the 2X extender. Our tour company was "Tropical Trails" We had a Fantastic Guide, Jacob Loserian. Ask for him if you book with TT!





Catching up on some Photo Processing on a Wet Sunday

10 04 2011

It’s a wet, cool day out today, so I caught up on some of my birds from a couple of weeks ago.  I haven’t had a chance to do much work on them recently with a short trip to Cleveland in the middle and a website that I’m supposed to have done for somebody 😦

Well, here are the birds from a couple of weeks ago… all nicely geotagged with the new BT-Q1000XT (Fun little device)
