great blue heron. making a photo to show the folks back home

Bunche Beach in Fort Myers, Florida

Some days I post no photos; other days I seem to be on a different pace...this is a composite of two photos from earlier today, but it's both ends of the photo experience....
the beach faces south west and is protected by a mangrove forest, so it's warm in the afternoon; but when night falls the temperatures will drop into the 40's again..

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1/3200s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Hmmm... Birds of a feather.

I thought of you today when I went for a walk with the dogs along the coast. I am a very amateur bird watcher, so today I took the binoculars rather than the camera, and saw all manner of shore birds and waders. Now, if I get that 600 mm from Santa, perhaps I will be able to get a decent picture to match the binocular views....

Nice combination. So you're not the only photographer on the beach. :)

This is quite funny and tells the story.
Nice legs eth? (on the egret, of course) ;-)

The heron is beautiful! Great image!

Oh to be able to wander about dressed like that. If you did that here you'd have hypothermia within 15 minutes, and be dead before the hour!
