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.

    Beautiful Heron♥ looks like you got nice and close! We have the same lens:)

  • Thank you, Heather. For some reason the birds on the pier are less afraid of people being nearby. Guess they’re used to it and have learned they will not be harmed.
