Three images taken during the morning golden hour. In most cases this is an ideal time to shoot. However, around water I find it can be tricky.
Above a Great Blue Heron was still hunkered down on an old wooden post that sites out in the marsh.
Next is a Tricolored Heron in the shallows. The light worked nice on his fall coloring.
The final image is a group of Roseate Spoonbills that were still sleeping in the reeds. This was one of the first wildlife photographs of the day. I had been shooting landscapes and just switched cameras. Fortunately the settings were good. It’s still dark and my glasses on chilly days like this are buried in a pocket four layers deep😂🤣 .
