> Some one suggested i get a nikon 70-300 lenses to get closer pics... going out to the everglades etc

The Nikkor 70-300 AFS VR is a nice lens, it will do what you want - get a bit closer (50% closer to be specific). On the other hand, Nikon also offer a 55-300 AFS VR DX that would do the same, for less money. It's less expensive because it's a DX lens, but that doesn't seem like an issue to you.

I must say that I have no comprehension as to why the others are advising the 18-55 or 35/f1.8 for "getting closer pics." They're fine lenses, but get you closer to Everglades subjects than a 55-200 they will definitely not do.
