A Few Portraits, Wading Birds

Publishing on a web site has it’s own series of challenges in regards to image formats. Some Readers and other web sites typically don’t display larger sized ( 8×10 for example) without chopping off the top.

I held aside these photographs not sure if they would be used on-line at all. However, since I have a few and the first photograph here does fit now they are lumped together in this single article.

The first is a Little Blue Heron, a full adult with what remains of some breeding colors.

The next is a Great Egret. The long out stretched neck made a nice shot, just one that would be cut in half by outside web sites. I think a search thumbnail would show a white neck only.

The Great Blue in a 4×3 format came out nice, but same problem.

Adult Tricolored Heron

Last is an adult Tricolored Heron. I was disappointed the branches blocked a clear shot. The bird is an accurate presentation of the look and stance, so against my better judgement it’s included.

Anyway, by placing problematic formats together here I made the best use of these photographs I could.
