    Nice catch, Joe. We don't get little ones for a couple months yet.

    Hi Paul, thank you for your comment. Nesting and hatching happen earlier here. I have made a mental note to get over to the eagle nest to see what is happening.

    You are getting some really great shots.

    I would give all 3 a bit more headroom, just a half inch or so, particularly in 3 which seems as if the top is forcing the heron to shrink its neck.

    Hello Andrew, most times there are two sites I go to for nature/bird photography. One is nearby ( a half hour away) and the other is on the east coast of Florida about a two hour drive.

    Thank you Steve, spring comes sooner in Florida and I think the warm winter has also moved the clock forward.

    Hello Bobo, not a problem cropping as you suggest... plenty of room in the original.
