Earl has breakfast at the Bluegill Buffet
 
.........and here is Earl (I named him yesterday) the egret having his way to breakfast.

These were done at the nearby Nature Preserve however one might think it is Florida and Steven R's back yard but it really is wild-nature.

I used the E-P3 and FT 70-300 but when Earl flew to the railing of the fishing dock I eventually did 'full framing' at 70mm,,,, close to about 10-feet.

Anyway, Earl did a many exposures session for me and here a few of our while together.

Is this the park they are still working on that isn't officially open yet, or a different place? Nice looking place.

Greg, yes, this is/was my private park for the past 6+ years (lol) but now => http://tinyurl.com/l3wfk6f.

Only phase one is done, the trails will come sometime later but I will be happy to be a personal guide, I know every square foot of the park.

And if you had not identified the location, I would have assumed that you had made a quick trip down here to Tampa. :):)
