Tri-Color Heron


This guy posed for me on a recent kayak trip.

I was in the kayak, not the bird.  The heron was in the mangroves.

You nailed that shot, Jack. Nice work! I'm impressed with the overall sharpness, especially if you shot it from a kayak. Very impressive!

Lovely detail in photo. Look at the length of that bill (or is it called a beak)!

Tri-color? It is! I've never seen one before, just a great blue. It's gorgeous! Well done! And aren't you brave to take a camera along in a kayak!

VP said...

Did you manage this from an unsteady kayak? Very good!

So you weren't in the kayak with a bird?

Excellent shot. Is this a French one? I mean, tricolour and all that...

Linda said...

Nice shot! What a long beak!

Cool. I've never seen one of these herons. Might be worth a trip to Florida to do so. ;)
