I've just started going through my collection of shots taken at the Loxahatchee Nature Reserve in Florida this past March. This 1st one was new for me - I'd never seen GBHs nesting before - nor did I imagine that they'd be so high (about 40 feet high). What caught my attention was one flying by with a beak full of twigs. Followedit toits nest and admired the rest.

While I was walking about the park, I spotted a GBH flying toward me. I was looking down at it a bit since I was on an elevated walkway and was able to capture it as it flew by - closer than I expected. Thisis a full frame shot.

It flew across the channel seen in the previous photo and landed on shore. I enjoyed this capture of it's open wings just before they closed. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Dan

great captures, dan!

those are in my neck of the woods. i have not been to any wildlife preserves in the area (except my little lake aka pond, of course) but i will get to them eventually. next time you're in the area, i know where you can get close-up shots of sandhill cranes. :|

The in flight and close up shot is breathtaking. Job well done. I have been trying to get a decent in flight shot of them for some time
