Tricolored Heron shaking it upTricolored Heron shaking it up on tippy toes – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/800, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

The Great Blue Heron I photographed on Christmas Day seems to have focused my attention on wading birds, yesterday it was Reddish Egrets and this morning I present a Tricolored Heron shaking its feather while on tip toes. I remember photographing this heron with my friends and fellow photographers;  Adrian, Mac and Rachel at Fort De Soto’s north beach at the lagoon near the concession stand.

I was laying down on the hard packed sand when I created this image which gave me a great low angle. Another title for this image might be “Tricolored Heron having a bad hair day”.
