the D3 has knocked me on my ass.

What a great camera! My buddy Leigh Beird lent me his D3 - 70-200 VR 2 kit for a workshop at the Muskoka Wildlife Center, and also for the tour I am hosting in Yellowstone next week., I am pretty lucky to have such a good friend.

Also, special thanks to HSway / Hynek for all the recent help!!

This camera is a dream for the low light shooting when you do not need the reach., one day I hope I can afford one! Also, the 70-200 was a pleasure to use... I did not fire a frame with this kit until I arrived at this workshop, so without any practice, and working in a dark forest, I cannot complain about the results.

Here are a few images, I will add more as I get them edited. No NR was used., all hand held, and natural light.
