A gathering to welcome us to the back end of the canal.
Since the water was higher than usual this day we were able to push through vegetation to further locations in this swamp. These Herons are not disturbed often, so they chose to ignore us, most of the time.
A frustration in wildlife photography is you can’t control the angle and placement of the shot or your subject. I would have loved to be facing these nests from the other side. But…swamp and Alligators, etc.
This bird made numerous trips using the same path. I did get nice in flight shots but the nest escaped me. You can see the female at the bottom of the images. Best I could manage.
These Storks are difficult to photograph and be near so I am more than happy to get these.
