Top Ten Winner in the “Flying Wonders” challenge in All Around Florida, Jan. 20, 2012


bird, heron, great blue heron, sholom park, ocala, water

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

  • Thank you, Dave. I was taking photos of this bird just standing there, but a young kid came along and chased it. I didn’t expect that, so I wasn’t quite prepared for the action picture!
