Today started slow but wound up as one of my best. Found four active nests, three Great Blue Heron and One Anhinga, in the top of Cypress Trees. Caught the Otters out of the water for the first time. Caught a moma Gator with her babies on her back.

I have a lot of photos to go through but this one series caught my eye. Of eleven photos in the series only one was out of focus enough to be unusable. The series is of a Great Blue Heron finding a twig and taking it back to the nest. Remember Pentax will not do action, so this was done with mirrors. Actually it was a K20D, Tokina 80 400mm with 1.5X TC.
