St. Augustine Fla. Alligator Farm, May 17-19

This is not an "organized meetup" with no RSVP necessary. No planned activities, just a good time to shoot birds at the Farm. Linda and I will be in St. Augustine from Thursday, May 16 to Sunday, May 19 to shoot at the Alligator Farm and other sites in the area. We are staying at the Sleep Inn at 601 Anastasia Blvd. [masked]) which is the closest hotel to the Farm.  There are a few rooms open for that weekend. Contact the Alligator Farm for rates. I recommend purchasing an annual pass that provides you access before and after normal operating hours. In case you have not been to the Alligator Farm, it provides incredibly close access to dozens of species of sea birds along a boardwalk.

As always, you are welcome to call my cell phone with questions.

    I plan on arriving Friday late afternoon, early evening, to be able to shoot Sat & Sun. I will be bringing a 100x400 zoom. Any value in bringing a 1.4 extender?

      I use one almost all the time with my bird photography. The good thing is that extenders are small enough to not take up a lot of space in your bag and as my husband is fond of saying, "Better to have and not need than to need and not have."

    We will be in the area from the 18th to the 23rd--not sure of what date(s) we will be at the Alligator Farm but it is a definite on our 'to do' list.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
