Just a simple Tricolored Heron image this morning that I created at Fort De Soto County Park in March of 2009. It was a great day for wading birds and I went home with quite a few images of this Tricolored Heron and a Reddish Egret that I was very happy with. Both birds completely ignored me as I laid flat on my belly in the sand and water because they were more interested in foraging for prey.

Life is good.

    Love this image, especially the unusual appearance of the water in the foreground.
