Great Blue Herons

In January I made wrote a post about the Great Blue Herons at Viera Wetlands. Those images were taken in late December when I met Trisha there for a day of shooting. The herons nest in the tops of palm trees just off the dikes at the wetlands. The proximity of the nests to the walking path makes for some great photography opportunities. The nests now have chicks in them, and while we saw some chicks in the nests during our last visits in early March, they weren’t quite big enough to see over the sides of the nest. Now they are much bigger and can easily been seen. I guess it’s time to head over there again.

Here are a few images from earlier this month. Click on an image to view large.

    Fantastic shots! Nice seeing you at Red Bug the other day. Per our conversation, I decided to go to E. Lake Toho and saw 4 Snail Kites. Thanks for the tip!
