Watching Behavior of Herons, Egrets and Limpkins

More practice with photographing white and movement.

A juvenile little blue heron.  Often my photos were overexposed and I could not see the bluish regions as the juvenile matures.  By backing off "Highlight" in Lightroom, I am able to bring out the blue regions

Early morning light - two not so small great blue heron chicks in morning light


Mom great blue heron resting after feeding her noisy chicks

I like the early morning light against clouds and blue sky

Four great blue heron chicks

More practice to photograph dragonflies in flight
