Where River Meets Marsh

Taken on a ‘not so nice’ day. Actually I didn’t expect to see anything.

This was taken on the marsh side of a long dike. The other side is a river.  The Ashley River from here ends just above Charleston, a few miles down river.

Low light, and using a walk around lens that needs it, made for some darker images. However the Herons were not moving around so I could shoot at a slower speed.

Night Heron On A Trunk

For a juvenile Black-crowned you can’t beat this spot for fishing. Sit up on the trunk braces and wait for something to swim by.

If the water’s not high there may be a place to stand below on the gate itself.

He needs to keep an eye on that pesky ‘camera photo’ critter, but he seems harmless.

I have never leaned over to watch when he drops down the trunk. It’s probably a little tricky with water flowing and maybe an Alligator nearby. I don’t need to make it any more difficult for him.
