Heron In The Swamp Daisy

A flower I had completely forgotten about. This is a late fall bloomer in the swamps here.

One of the first shots of a Heron for that morning and he shows up in a bed of Swamp Daisy.

The low sun and yellow flowers made for spectacular colors.

After these few photographs I moved on leaving him to his morning.

Charleston, South Carolina.

Ring-billed Gull

The bird that truly ‘gets no respect’.

And yet it’s probably one of the most photographed birds.

When I was learning to shoot birds in flight I stood on the banks of the Connecticut river for hours with these Gulls.

They are agile, fast, and usually close.

Herons In The Rookery

It’s always a good sign when the Great Blues make an early appearance in the rookery. Every year the environment changes and Herons may not come back.

Standing mid way through the swamp this Great Blue came in low and close, just like they always do.
