Wakodahatchee Wetlands 12-13-2011

I stopped in the late afternoon at the wetlands for an hour. The best part of the afternoon was the Green Heron that played out in the open, right under my feet for 20 minutes. I got 40 frames or so. A Northern Harrier cruised through twice but I did not get it. The GBH's are lining up and starting nest reconstruction. The are not in heat yet, but will be soon - i.e., their breeding plumage isn't there yet but you can tell it is coming.

Nikon D7K, Nikon 300mm f4, process workspace in: ACR, Photoshop, Topaz Adjust 5.

    That screeching Morehen is so funny. I love great expressions on birds, especially water birds. Nice. I wish I was there with you. I like the drooping Anhinga too.

    Love those Green Herons too. They almost always have suspicious looks on their faces like you're going to steal something from them. And, the plumage looks so good this time of year. When is the height of mating season for them?

    I wish you'd gotten that Harrier. I never have.
