This morning I returned to the local fish hatchery, trying to again find the bald eagle I had seen Saturday. He didn't return, and most of the shots I took of ospreys were poorly lit because of a deep haze/fog, as you can see with this one who had just caught his breakfast



However, I did encounter a very different bird choosing the hatchery buffet as a breakfast spot



He was not happy with my presence, and loudly let me know as he moved to another pond



A great blue heron watched the show for a while, decided he didn't want to play, then flew to the top of a tall tree



About an hour later, I found a much more cooperative Egret who let me get close enough for some good shots



There was a limit, however, to his patience as well





All shots taken with the K20 and the Bigma.

Thanks for the nice comment, Rodney, but patience doesn't have as much to do with the long time shooting as laziness.Once a fat man walks deep into a complex of more than 30 ponds, he's going to stay a while to make the walk worth it....:-)
