Shallow Water Swamp, Great Blue Heron

Not far from the rookery we photograph is a different type of swamp. The water is shallow in most places and covered with greens. Herons don’t nest here, but the hunting is pretty good.

This water flows down into the rookery so most of the birds, and of course Alligators, frequent here.

This particular Heron was chasing another away as I took these shots. He was low, at eye level, so the images take on a different perspective.
