    Birds... A Few From Monday

    Dottie and I got out to the marsh at the nature reserve for a couple hours Monday morning. These are a few of what I captured. C&C welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Anhinga... they swim better than they fly so going for this branch is a struggle. When they fly high they have a unique way of doing it... five beats of the wings and then glide to be repeated over and over.

    Great Blue Heron... I am puzzled why they will carry a stick across the marsh to the nest site when there are so many nearby.

    Sometimes it's nice to sit back and just soak in beautiful pictures without trying to be too analytical about what makes them so good. Thanks, Joe.

    Always lovely shots Joe.
    Is an Ahinga like a cormorant? Other than lighter chest they look alike.

    Great stuff Joe. I wish our local nature reserve offered the same diversity and opportunity.

    Thanks Bud, I believe we photograph what is most available and captures our interest...Florida has a lot of birds ( especially in the winter). It is total enjoyment in photographing them and working up the images on the computer.

    Hello Nancy, Anhinga and Commorant are similar in their actions and appearance. Anhinga have a very pointed bill where Commorant's bill in hooked. Anhinga spear fish with the bill.

    Hello John, thank you for viewing and commenting. Until I began photographing natural things in Florida I was not aware of the diversity, it truly is a gift for bird photographers.
