Anglican Chapel, Black And White

Any time we pass an old Chapel of Ease we stop and take a few shots. I try to finish the photographs a little different. I even succeed once in a while.

Build in 1740, tabby construction, by local planters.

Stork Public Baths

Another one of those ‘you can’t make this up’ moments.

We have all seen Sparrows, or other small birds splashing in puddles. This, well a flock of Wood Storks all bathing in a marsh.

I’ve never seen this before. They were nesting not far from this spot.

There was an Egret in the mix, but he was completely over shadowed by the much larger Wood Storks.

Making An Escape, Night Heron

A few fast shots of a Black-crowned Night Heron making a ‘speedy escape’ into the woods.

Shooting wide allowed me to make the shots. When a fast bird makes a flight like this you need all the help you can get.

The dark, and vivid green is what made this shot.

Egret, A Softer Look

A large number of Great Egret scenes came to the top of the list today. After plowing through them, finishing some, and publishing some, I moved on for a while.

This image came up in another group but ultimately came out in a softer, rather than natural, look.

The light seemed good for this style so I kept it.

 

Another Chase, Great Blue Herons

It was one chase after another in the marsh. They did take breaks, caught a few fish, but most of the time it was a chase.

It even looked like they took turns on who was the chaser, and who was the chased.

It was hot and hazy shooting, but great fun.
