I spotted a bird in flight in the corner of my eye.
A Little Blue Heron going past at full speed.
I was focused and ready for an Alligator in the marsh so I was pretty much set, a change to a closer subject but the Little Blue was in a good spot.
Of course later on after downloading the photos… it was a juvenile Night Heron. A bird faster than I planned on.
Another of those surprises you get when shooting wildlife.
But I did get the Alligator in the background who was the original target.
I must admit, if I planned on the Night Heron in the first place good chance I missed. He was moving along pretty fast.
