It’s wonderful to get so close to these beautiful birds. Photographed with a Canon SX40 HS.

    Gorgeous capture. I’m guessing you live in Florida to have this opportunity to capture so many beautiful herons and shore birds. Lucky you.

    Thanks Alexis,

    Florida does sound wonderful but I live in a coastal city in Central California. Yesterday and all in one location near the shore, there were Black Turnstones, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Black Oystercatchers, and a Great Blue Heron. Also there were numerous Brown Pelicans flying about. It’s pretty amazing here!
