A few different Tricolored Heron photographs that had been uploaded but never published. Rather than have several articles here is a random grouping of a favorite critter.
The first set was a quick series of shots when the Heron surprised me by deciding to suddenly leave. We had been watching him for a while, he was actually walking slowly away back into tall reeds.
While the same marshlands, Merritt Island, the heron below is a different bird.
Last here, from Orlando Wetlands, a Tricolor on the hunt. It looks like whatever he was stalking was not worth the effort.
