Taken in a Great Blue Heron rookery.
The big guys are not the only ones flying along the swamp. While waiting for the Great Blues other opportunities come around. Like this Night Heron.
A Night Heron made a quick flight between two islands in this swamp. While they are hard to catch in flight I was ready and focused, I had a pretty good chance of getting these.
I lost him when he ducked into the island brush.
In June the big birds are finished here and these Night Herons will be building nests. Unfortunately they are secretive and nest deep in the island brush.

You have some GREAT photos. I’m from Florida so miss the swamps and woodlands. Thanks for helping me see them again.
Thanks so much. I will be adding more from Florida soon. We shoot from the SC Lowcountry and all down the coast. Thanks again.
