So I went back to Florida Lake in thehope that the Black Heron would still be there- I was going in to deliver something in the area. This time round I was armed with the Sigma 170-500mm and some trees, the latter came in very useful for this skittish bird that flies off at any approach. Some of the folk at the lake thought I was crazy, going to and fro, following the bird, unitl I hit on the idea of using the trees to shield me from view.
Very well caught

I have seen them doing it, but not in a photofriendly way for me

Killdeer on some RR tracks. It had chicks nearby and did the broken wing routine for me, but I was unable to get a good image of the display.

Thank you! And it was still there this past Sunday - where I had to go and deliver something a block or two from the lake.

Northern water snake. We saw several of these during our AM walk a few days ago.

Thanks! It nearly filled the viewfinder, so there was lots of pixels from the K3iii and DFA 150-450.

For the first time since the wildfires began there was some clear sky so my osprey images turned out reasonably well. K-3 and D FA 150-450. 1/1000 @ ƒ5.6, ISO 400, EV +1.

LOL- that just about sums it up!

From yesterday's visit to Rabie Ridge Bird Sanctuary-a rare sighting, after many many visits. Skittish fellow, gone in a flash.
