Tricolor Heron & Little Blue Heron
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: K20D Photo Location: southern Florida 
Posted By: WPRESTO, 10-04-2010, 08:07 AM

Two more wading birds shot with the 55-300, a much better lens than it's price would suggest. The flowers in the background beyond the Little Blue Heron are called "duck potato."

That first has a beautiful beak, but I think I prefer the second- love the composition and colors!

Thanks for kind comments. I think the tricolor heron is now officially called a Louisiana Heron, but all my guides still call it a tricolor.
