Young Heron Flying Around Me

How do you get to shoot a Night Heron in flight? Have one fly circles around you. With an Alligator nearby of course.

These small Herons are pretty fast, and shy.

However this juvenile wasn’t sure where to land, so for a few minutes he didn’t.

I don’t think I have ever captured this many in flight of a Night Heron before, he gave me plenty of opportunities. In several shots you can see an Alligator in the background.

Little Blue In A Garden Pond

Taken in the old Magnolia Plantation garden pond. Actually a small swamp area fed by the pond. It’s not near as clean and manicured.

This Heron is one of a few that stay around the main plantation ponds.

If fishing is good they will ignore people walking by, within reason.

 

City Hall, Another Main Street

There is a new City Hall here replacing this one. But that’s not the story of ‘Main Street’. It is the entire street, and economy around it.

Metal fence blocks the street, it’s busy, but it’s cars passing through going somewhere else.

I chose to photograph this since the towns most famous resident just may run for US president after this election.

I wonder if she drives through the old main street on any visits home.
