It's not recommended for use in the Everglades !

That's taking birding to a new dimension ...

You might try a sporting goods center...I have seen them used in waterfowl hunting.

You could also use a ghillie suit. This photographer/artist shows how he uses his to get some amazing photos. I have been wanting to get me one.

Also not recommended anywhere with a nesting pair of Mute Swans! The male would attack this 'intruder' very vigorously ;-)

Thanks, DWMike, I wasn't really serious. I just thought the photo was somewhat humorous. However, I do like the Ghillie. But, in that, you're apt to get shot by someone thinking they saw Bigfoot. I'll just stick with a 500mm lens and a teleconverter, if necessary. I'm not very brave. Thanks for the link. Adam Grimm is really the artist. He has done some great work and has been recognized for it.

Resin, you're absolutely correct but I'd rather have the Mute Swan attack versus an Alligator in the water ...
