Tricolored Tuesday #4

Continuing on with my December 15th shoot, which was my second opportunity to photograph the tricolored heron.

A fine series on this beautiful bird. I like all the close ups with such good detail. Your capture of his/her color is excellent.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

What a great quote. I love the white stripe that runs down his neck.

Karen said...

He's so handsome! I love the last shot, he looks very pleased with his photo shoot!

Wonderful captures of this beautiful bird!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The quote is absolutely true. But I'm glad we have high tech so you can share your wonderful images with us. That one pic of the heron where he looks like he has a topknot is so adorable. They all are wonderful.

Fantastic shots of this gorgeous bird!

Why I do believe he has been practising posing for you! Such wonderful shots, they made me smile.

Amy Burzese said...

I agree with many above. The third shot is very good. He is quite happy posing for you, isn't he. lol

Excellent shots and so close.

Kittie Howard said...

Gorgeous photos, Gail. Ohhh, but the eyes had me! The try-colored heron is a precious jewel in Nature's awesome crown!

barbara l. hale said...

Cool! I've never seen a tri-colored heron. Great pics!

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Oh, these are so beautiful. You had a perfect day for this outing. I, too, love the third image. The last shot shows the incredible length of his neck. You'd have to be very careful scratching an itch with those feet, wouldn't you?

Shug said...

Definitely a true quote....What have we all gotten ourselves in to? While technology is wonderful...it sure robs us of so much life. You've got the best of both worlds... A place full of beautiful wildlife AND a great camera! Enjoyed the photos..

Evelyn S. said...

Such great shots, Gail! Are the tri-colored ones as shy as the Blue? I've told you about my ongoing quest to get close enough to actually photograph one!

eileeninmd said...

Michelle said...

That is a handsome bird! Great shots!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

These are great! You've given me a wonderful look the heron. I've never heard of a tricolored one. Love that quote, too. I really do crave nature.

Indrani said...

Such wonderful photography! Great series.
I hope to capture a heron in my frame one day, wonder if it will be so good. :)

Carletta said...

A great series of shots!
I too enjoyed the third shot - great portrait of Mr. Tri-Color.

Brian King said...

Love the third photo! Such a handsome bird!

Barbara said...

Great captures!!

EG CameraGirl said...

I very much agree with the quote you included with this post! This heron seems almost tame.

Rosemary Aubut said...

So true about the quote! Love herons they are such graceful birds especially in their landing technique! Great photos!

Wally Jones said...

Combine a beautiful setting with a gorgeous model.

Add a talented photographer.

The rest - is history!

Very nice work, Gail!
