It was a nice day and I just got my new Kingmax 66X 256 cards, so I thought I'd see what I could find to photograph. The first place that came to mind was the golf course. It's right on the Banana River which is brackish so we get a good variety of birds like herons, pelicans, shore birds and even an occasional green parrot flock (escapees from a defunct pet shop). These are a few shots I took. Keep in mind, I took these in about an hour, didn't sit in a blind for hours, but just shot what was there. All of these were cropped except the Great Blue Heron and they all have been reduced to less than 250K by Photobucket. These shots are two different Blue Herons in different locations.







A Green Heron



and an adult Brown Pelican.

Excellent shots of the Great Blue Herons! We have those up here in western Canada as well, but they migrate south for the winter. Now I know where they go!

It looks like you were able to get real close (almost underneath), to take thatpelican shot! The bird shows no fear! I guess being around a golf course, they get used to people being close. Nice shot too!

wonderfull shots

comment keep bird off center ie give a little more space for the side that the bird is looking into.
This applies to humans too.

Nice sharp shots herk56.

I agree with boyzo about keeping the subject off center but well done all the same.

Thanks for the comments. I'll try off centering the subject to improve the composition next time.
