  • Thanks Jim; I went shooting almost everyday and I’m a little tuckered out from the heat; I played golf (all 18 holes!) yesterday!!

    Fabulous shot of this Night Heron… I’m always surprised, when I see them close-up, how small they are… They frequent our pond and get very close and you can miss them as they are not as large and showy as the herons… great timing on your part for just a sensational photo.

  • Thank you very much KatMagic; this was one of my target birds this year and I managed to get many good images; I also did pretty well with a very cooperative and diminutive green heron; I will post some of those images soon.

    Beautifully captured Daniel!! We were very lucky to see our first one a few weeks ago, of course no opportunity to capture him as he was in the in the marsh behind the weeds. This is amazing!

  • Thank you Dave and Trena; they are a treat to sight and a challenge to photograph; hopefully you will find a cooperative subject!
