These herons are glutenous birds. Well done Harry.
Hi Gordon,

The herons have only two goals in life eating and mating. The eating take sup most of their time. Thanks for the kind words.

Very impressive work, Harry! What lens did you use?
Hey Frank,

Thank you. I used my 80-400VR for those pics. I find the 80-400 to the best fit for the Wetlands because the birds are sometimes fairly close to you an dyou don't have time to change lenses.

Thank you Dao, glad you liked the pics.

I was in Vietnam from 68-70. I spent the first year in Dau Tieng in Tay Ninh province and the second year in Ninh Hoa a small village about an hour north of Nha Trang.

HarryB,

First, thank you for your service to our country. I appreciate it very much.

Second, awesome Green Heron shots. I've never seen one eat a frog before.

Thanks for sharing,

Hey Gale,

Herons will never be known for their table manners.

Can't wait for the shoot. We will have to show these folks the ins and outs of the Wetlands. Don't want to have anyone stepping on a gator.

Thank you very much Patrick.

I'm lucky having such easy access to the Wetlands so I get to see a lot of their behavior.

Hi Harry,
Those pictures are amazing :!:

You work wonders with the 80-400VR lens too. Do you usually use a monopod or tripod or do you do the wetlands handheld? I remember you used a tripod on Sanibel..You never seem to miss no matter how you take the picture...

Good job and I'll be looking for your pictures from this weekend's big photo shoot.

Hi Gaye,

Thanks for the kind words. When I shoot in the Wetlands I usually shoot from my car so I'm handholding my camera. I use my tripod or monopod more at other locations.

Right now I got around 1200 pics to process from this weekend so far (some of us are shooting tomorrow morning). I should have some pics to post soon.
