I had the pleasure of photographing a fine Tricolored Heron the other morning. Usually these handsome birds are a bit skittish but this specimen was quite cooperative. A slow approach by kayak, more drifing than paddling, certainly helps keep them calm. Here are a couple shots from the encounter.
I am so glad I stumbled upon your website. I am enjoying your pictures so much. Thank-you for sharing them with us in computerland. I have just begun my own photography adventure and see that I have much to learn and much more expensive camera equipment to buy. Thanks again.
