There Could Be A Yawn Coming

There Could Be a Yawn – I have made thousands of photographs of birds over the years.  This is the first image I have made or seen for that matter, where the bird’s beak was starting to open from the base rather than the tip.  It really does look as though there could be a yawn coming.

During a February trip to South Florida with friends that included day trips to Everglades National Park, we took advantage of the opportunity to watch and photograph many of the resident birds.  Our time in the Everglades was memorable and the many photographs we came home with will keep that memory around for some time to come.

Pa-hay-okee Trail – Everglades National Park – Our last stop of the day was at another boardwalk that wound around through Mahogany trees and a lot more. After clearing the hammock we came upon a Tricolored Heron who gave me plenty of good looks. I managed to make 71 photos of this fellow, but don’t worry not all were saved.
