Very nice.

You know, I had no idea that comorants lived in trees. I guess I've always just seen them in the water and have not really thought about it much.

These are islands in the gulf of Mexico off Homosassa, FL called the Saint Martins Keys. These islands are little outposts in the very shallow water (2-5 feet deep) where mangroves have sprung up from higher rocks. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of birds roosting in the mangrove trees.

We were on an air boat which made getting in-focus shots a bit hard. I used the E-PL2 with my trusty 70-300mm for all these shots, btw.

Love the Blue Heron, great plumage colour and the surroundings just look so vibrantly green and warm.
Lucky you escaping the spring that doesn't want to warm up

One of my many "D'oh" moments taking pictures: on a boat trip near Pictured rocks, i brought along my monopod to steady myself for taking pictures of the shore from the rocking boat.

Looks like you and Zig like to travel to similar points in Florida, and I can see why. Great diversity in the fowl population and some great photo ops.

No big anaconda shots? What with all the idiots releasing their "pets" because they got too big (duh) it seems to be a thiving population down there.

Good ones! Well done series of shots. Nice selection of birds and good use of the 70-300.
