Great Blue Heron, Floating Island

The full moon and hurricanes have the marshes and tidal areas very active. The wind has been strong for a few days. This heron, and others, were riding along on small floating islands of grasses.

There are a large number of big herons in the marshes now and we were able to walk the dikes and photograph more than usual.

The hurricane last year took a toll on these marshes but they are finally back. Most of hurricane Irma moved west, but this area will still get beat up a little. These heron’s should still be around after the storms though.

    1. Thanks. I was disappointed in some of the detail. My own fault. I changed my file format to be small jpg, needed down and dirty photos. Of course I went out, had a great day, and discovered I did a 101 no no. Yeah, forgot to shoot in RAW. Never put my formats back !!!
