Decided at the last minute yesterday afternoon to drive over to Viera. Had a fantastic few hours. I saw Caracaras and a few Ospreys and a hawk. Hopefully can get to them and get them processed. In the meantime, here are 3 Green Herons for you to enjoy. I was very fortunate in finding quite a few. This first one thought he'd be able to blend in with the palm tree and act like a broken off frond, but he didn't fool me. Handheld 300/f4 w/1.4x tc This guy stood in the same position and posed for me for quite a while. I got so close I had to switch to 12mp mode to fit him in the viewfinder. I crouched on the side of the berm while handholding 300/f4 w/1.4x tc Can't decide if the previous shot or this one is my favorite. He was quite active and I chased him around quite a bit. Something must've been bothering him (besides me) as he was "ruffled" most of the time. Again, handheld with the same combination. Feedback/comments welcome!
