Sylvia, Mike Anton and I went birding in the Bataan and Pampanga portions of Manila Bay.
I brought my 70-300L and 500mm. The 500mm stayed in the bag the whole day.The views were so amazing I wish I had brought my wide angle lens instead of the big telephoto.
One great scene after another greeted us. Caspian Terns at dawn, then a great sunrise, followed by the most amazing scene of thousands of Black-headed Gulls flying in a wave pattern right in front of us.
