    Thanks Uwe for the nice encouragement. This is my first time doing wildlife and the D3X is not suppose to be the ideal camera. Here is another one with the same lens and camera.
    Best Regards,
    Son

    Absolutely beautiful wildlife captures, Son. The last frame with the Alligator and the Egret (?) is a price winner !

    Since when did you start shooting Nikon D3X - a recent purchase ?
    Looking forward to see more

    The Alligator and Egret picture is extraordinarily beautiful -- one of the best images I have seen on GetDPI (or any other forum, for that matter).

    Re: D3X Wildlife Image

    Thanks Steen, Jonathon and Otumay for the kind remarks.

    Steen, during my visitation to Florida to see a great friend he lend me his D3X to try out and I came away with very high quality files. It is an Egret.

    Jonathon, I was very lucky to get this shot. The day before my shooting session, I saw an image from one of my friend where the bird was standing on the alligator back. I though I would attempt to shoot one where the egret would fly over the alligator and with the reflection to cup the alligator. So that morning I waited until the moment to arrive and luckily the camera did what it was supposed to do and the rest you saw.

    Here are a few more images from the D3X file. The last image was heavily croped because the bird was flying at a very high speed and my lens was not long enough by the time I was able to track it in focus. This little bird is the fastest one I encountered that day.

    Best Regards,
    Son

    Re: D3X Wildlife Image

    Son: Very nice photos. I would have thought that the D3x would be an ideal wildlife camera. Moose Peterson seems to think so. Although, the D3s with higher ISO performance might be better at keeping shutter speeds up for BIF shots.

    Cheers, Matt

    Re: D3X Wildlife Image

    Son, bravo for your first wildlife post. The gator/egret shot is wonderful in many ways, content, composition and rarity immediately come to mind. You also did a great job not blowing the highlights on the egrets something I've done more times than I can count. I guess you will need to come for another visit to Florida. I'll take you to the Everglades and you can teach me how to use the xACT-2
