Was out at blackpoint on the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge again, got a couple pictures. As usual the full sized versions and more are on flickr, the first photo is a link.

I have another couple hundred shots to go thru, but I liked these.

Redish Egret



Ospry

Hi 2many,

Both shots are very good, but the Osprey shot is outstanding! Very nice work!

I've never seen one, but #1 looks like a Reddish Egret to me from what I can see from my books -- I think that the Pink bill with the black tip is the giveaway.

Thanks scott, yes it could be a redish egret, I dont have one in my book, but I looked it up on the internet and I do believe your right.

The ospy was sitting on a railing by the pier as I came off the island, I snuck around the concession stand, took a couple shots from around the corner he didnt move so I moved ever closer shotting as I went, got to within about 10' of him before he flew.

Second one is my favorite. DOF is there and the sharpness is great. Details of white and black feathersis superb.

The first one is very good also.
