    All from the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine.

  2. Wow nice series seems to be the day for green herons, I love the second one, what a great perspective. The last is my next favorite. Keep them coming.

    Thanks Mike, I had a great time taking them. I was about 8 feet from the second one looking down from a walkway.

    Jim, they are very cute. Supposedly we have one here locally that Frank see's and captures. I think its a plastic heron that he takes to the pond on slow bird days. :)

    Great shots Patrick. It's about time that you got around to processing and posting them. 8)

    My Little Green Heron is not plastic BTW (it's made of modeling clay....;-)).

  7. Sweet shots Patrick!! The colors in the green heron shots....especially the first explode out of the pic. The last snowy egret shot is just splendid!! :) :) :) :)

  9. #2 and #4 are fantastic shots. Excellent detail and great separation from the background.

    Good Job Patrick....that trip was so much fun! I only wish I'd gotten as many fabulous shots as you did....maybe when my D2X comes in we can go back and I can show you what I can REALLY do!
  11. Hi Patrick......

    great series, but #4 is AWESOME 8) Cool shot and you nailed it. Very envious of you birders out east. Still waiting for the 12-18 inches of ice to melt. Too fricken cold :shock: For now have to live through all your shots to get me through it, our 6 weeks of summer just doesnt cut it!

    Patrick and Leigh,
    Where are the alligator shots? Do they still have an albino alligator there.

    Wonderful shots and know you're happy with them.

    I'll meet you there next time and we'll storm the place with our big cameras and lenses :lol:

    Best to you both and thanks,

    Yes they do have an albino. I have some gators somewhere on my drive but birds are my fav. I'll try to post some gators tonight.

    Thanks everyone for the responses.

    Superb, that second shot is absolutely fantastic. Nice to see a different perspective.

  18. Patrick, Love them all, but esp the last one - couldn't ask for better lighting for a wing spread shot! Keep sharing please.
