Sex on the Beach
May 12, 2004

I had another chance to take a few shots with a D70 yesterday during a training session in Palo Alto. This really is a pretty nice body... I was letting my student use my 500mm f/4 and she was kind enough to let me play with her camera a bit. I took 8 shots over the two times I had my hands on it, none of which were back-focused by the way... and five were noteworthy. I've posted four that you might enjoy.

The first three, of American Avocets doing what Avocets do, were taken at f/5.6. The last one of a Forster's Tern was taken at f/4.5.

The female expressing her willingness to mate:

The male hopping on:

The denouement:

Here's the Forster's Tern...
