    I can't remember when I shot at the wetlands in the evening. I can tell you though, I like evening so much better than morning. Nice sweet light, cooler, and birds, birds, birds! (kevin, the gators were there tonight)

    Here is a sampling of my shoot: 70-200VR TC 1.7II
    A lone spoonbill

    ...Who decided to bolt when I wasn't ready!

    A young tricolored heron..begining to sprout some real feathers:

    Enjoying the evening light:

    An Ibis..but what?

    Very nice series, Trish. I am getting so envious of you folks that reside in FL. Such wonderful images of wildlife, we have so little variety of big birds here in Chicago. Please keep the wonderful images coming, it's the next best thing to shooting them myself!

    I enjoy the solitude very much out there. To me it is better than any day at some fancy spa! just do it!

    Thanks frank. I am not sure what is going on w/ my camera and or lenses....I am not getting the tack sharpness I had.....guess it's time for an adjustment?
  8. I agree, Trish! Last weekend was so calm and relaxing and just plain enjoyable. I was the only out there for about 5 hours! I left at about 4p. Am thinking of maybe going tomorrow afternoon.

    Your shots are great! You got that Rosie @ Viera? I've never seen one there! I don't know what you mean about not getting sharp shots. Your tricolor, egret and ibis are sharp! That ibis is a glossy ibis, btw. Wasn't sure if your ? was seeking an id or not. ;)  Maybe I'll see you out there.

    Did you see the Caracaras and ospreys? The Caracaras were sitting in the tall pine tree by the parking lot....2 of them, along with 2 vultures. Funny the gators were hiding from me last week.

    hi Kevin,
    The rosie just showed up yesterday. Just one, but stands out in the crowd. Enjoy your shoot...If I get lucky I may be up there in the evening...I have been gas guzzling lately going up so often..

    Trish :

    Likely a White-Faced Ibis that hasn't fully shifted from winter colours (odd, but possible).
