Going back to my December 1st shots, more examples of the tricolored heron.






Don't look back.
You're not going that way.

Who needs video with shots like these? :) These are beautiful and really capture the hunting technique. Looks like it was successful, too.

Interesting indeed....I certainly think you did an awesome job with these photos...check out the water as it is forced up....Perfect timing!! Hope you all stay warm today...it's cold here and looks like it might be worse in your area....

Kittie Howard said...

Gail, your photos are amazing . . . get thee to National Geographic! (I especially like how the water ripples in the 1st photo.)

Was für ein langer dünner Hals. Das habe ich noch nie gesehen. Da dauert es ganz schön lange, bis das Essen im Magen landet.

Schöne Aufnahmen!

Liebe Grüße

These are great. I think I got photos of one of these, but didn't know which heron it was. I learn a lot from you! Thanks.

A fine series of this beautiful bird. I especially like the picture with the bird's wing extended.

I seriously think you need to start submitting to magazines. It might take some rejection, but your photos really capture the eye and a good editor would appreciate them!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They are so beautiful. And your pictures are as always amazing.

The first time I saw these birds I thought I was seeing two different species because I saw one with his neck out and one with it in.

Really nice these pictures of the heron. I have never seen such a beautiful heron itself. However, the blue and white, but never this purple :-)
