Great Blue Heron
I still have quite a few images to process from Florida - so here are a few more from my two visits to Gatorland Bird Rookery.
One of the largest birds I photographed was the Great Blue Heron. Superficially very similar to the Grey Heron we see in the UK, they stand motionless when finishing, making for some interesting images.
I was also fortunate to be able to get some action shots - first a series of images of a bird shaking its feathers dry.
And secondly a series of one bird fishing. The light was quite harsh by this stage but I was pleased to catch the moment the bird stuck into the water.
