FCCP Flight Night at Safety Harbor Marina

Every other Thursday night we'll meet up to practice Bird in Flight (BIF) photography. You can also practice other forms of photography, such as Dragon Fly in Flight (DIFF), or Squirrel in Flight (SIF). Just kidding, you're welcome to shoot what you want, and instruction will be give when requested.

This a great opportunity to photograph the many herons, egrets and ibis' as they head to Cooper's Bayou to roost.  Occasionally we see Spoonbills and other species as well. This can provide very stunning shots if the setting sun cooperates.

The PhotoWalks will be scheduled in various parks around the Tampa Bay area that are conducive to shooting flight shots and other photography. The times will vary according to the time the sun sets and Daylight Savings Time, etc. If you know a great location to hold these PhotoWalks, please leave a comment with the suggested location.

There is an optional dinner afterwards at one of the downtown restaurants.

      I'm leaving this one at 5 PM, but the next ones will start at 6 PM. Feel free to explore the area. Manatees have been frequently spotted at the end of the pier. Dolphins can also be seen from time to time.
