    Great Blue Heron and Chicks....

    It finally began to warm up in Florida so my wife and I got outside yesterday. We found this Heron and chicks at Viera Wetlands. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Love this series Joe . I really like the composition in all, and the pose in 3 kinda stands out to me. For the alert adult look .

    Nice captures, Joe. I particularly like #2 - the adult looks like it is smiling.

    Nice set of images, Joe. Number 1 is the strongest, IMO. Thanks for sharing.

    They are all great. I like number 3 the best. They're all keeping an eye out. Probably for Dad coming home with dinner.

    Hello Roger, thank you for viewing and commenting. I like #3 and #4 also, but it was #3 that caught my attention the most... something about the pose of the birds.

    Hello Bud, you and I think alike regarding the pose in #3. We waited hoping the other would arrive but it didn't happen.

    Beautiful, and my herons are so sad looking in comparison.. Thank you for sharing. One day I'll get there.

    I love them all. How did you manage to get so close? Camera settings please. Thank you.

    Just really great - beautifully lit, almost to the point of looking as though in a studio. Picking a favorite impossible for me.

    FxIF data is available (lens, settings. etc) - I get it on my Mac with use of FxIF, an easy download, there's the equivalent for PCs I'm sure. There was a thread about this just the other day...

    Hello Christina, thank you for viewing and commenting. Here is a website that will give you the EXIF data for most images. Right click on the image in a thread ( not in Lytebox ), from the menu click on Copy Shortcut. Open the EXIF viewer and paste the shortcut in the box that says Image URL. Then click View Image at URL, that will list all the data. This will show you more than you want to know... what you are looking for will be towards the bottom.
