Time to Take a Break 2 – After walking around for some time, this Tricolored Heron stopped and just stood statue-still as though it was time to take a break. As this bird stood there, it became more relaxed and the bend in the neck became more pronounced.
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.
