Daughter Mary and I made a quick run through the gator farm rookery. It's still winding up but when it gets hotter I won't be able to handle it. I got enough for several posts, these are all I had the energy to process today, gonna take a nap now.
This was the first outing for my Sony since it got back from the repair shop. No problems so far!
Great shots, as usual.
Here's a shot from last year. Thank you for alerting me to this wonderful place.
Beautiful as Always!
It will only get better over the next few weeks.
You are so artistic and gifted, Swampsniper! Don’t be modest either! You have such an “eye” for nature.
Love the Snowies in mating plumage. They are birds with attitude!
Truly beautiful. I especially enjoy your spring threads.
I wish that my dad was still alive to enjoy your work. He was a lifelong bird lover and could ID hundreds by sight or sound. He also was a photographer with a darkroom in the 40's and 50's. You and he would have liked each other.
"Bring me a... ROOKERY!"
Please put me on your pinglist, Swampsniper.
Happy Easter! Thank you for the beautiful pictures too!
Swampsniper: You’ve done it again! I’ve swiped one of your pix for the desktop of my laptop which just came back from the Toshiba hospital. Actually, it’s sized wrong, so it’s just a piece of your shot, but it really looks stunning — very artistic.
Your photos now reside on 2 of my 3 computers, and you are about to replace Sarah Palin on my 3rd one when I get back to work! LOL.
Was this digital, or film? My husband wants to know.
I used the Sony A200 DSLR, some with a Sony 75-300 f4.5~5.6, some with a Sigma 400mm f5.6.
LOL, the Tri-color Heron was right in the crowd with you. At the gator farm in breeding season the birds have no problem associating with humans.
