Night Heron Roost

I usually find Night Herons one or two at a time. Now it’s what I have come to expect.

I should be more careful because I’m not expecting quick flights when photographing one. These two Black-crowned were out in the open, easy to take my time.

Not really the time I expected, I missed one flying almost on my head. The tree with two in the open was filled with small Herons.

Good fortune though, I spotted more and watched where the others flew to. They landed right down the pond.

I guess this is their comfortable roost so I will try to come at it from different directions now. If I don’t scare them into flight it’s a win for both of us.

Cemetery Mallards

Almost city birds. A large pond, near the marsh and Cooper River, so it’s almost in town.

They did break the rule a little since Alligators do come over from the marsh. That’s why the ‘almost’ city dwellers.

Still it’s safer here than many other spots.

I’ve always loved Mallards. I once looked on line and found they are the second most photographed animal.

Yeah, number one… Cats of course.
