Tri colored heron
Lens: DA*300 mm +HD1.4 TC Camera: K3 Photo Location: Sanibel Island Florida ISO: 250 Shutter Speed: 1/800s Aperture: F9

Here's a tri colored (I think) Heron I shot at one of the Bailey tracts on Sanibel Island a few weeks ago. I was really looking for alligators but the wife wasn't thrilled walking thru swampy areas looking for them. Thus, we cut the walk short.

This one cropped a little to remove distracting background elements.

Very good shot. Shows the bird nicely. I don't know what it is with women and alligators. My wife feels the same way about crocodiles.

It reminds me of the book "a blue heron" from elementary school

Thank you for the kind comments. Wife really didn't even want to walk very far past the parking lot.
