Well, I’m back in California. I’ll be uploading the photos from Florida slowly, so how about I start it off with a boat tailed grackle?

Welcome home! I hope you had a good time in Florida! I see you got a Limpkin. Woot woot! They are no longer endangered but they are not everywhere like some of the wading and shorebirds. NIce Boat-tailed Grackle photos.

There are five pictures here.  They were taken at the upper end of Patagonia Lake in Southern Arizona with a 500mm lens, at f 5.6, 1/3200 sec, ISO 640, from about 185 feet away.  Total time elapsed from start to finish was 1/2 second for the five shots.  I seems like a moment in the life of a bird that is 1/2 second long should be one picture, but modern cameras have changed the dynamics.  When I think of this Green Heron landing, I see it as one event.GreenHeron1.thumb.jpg.4537c4ea10c335176fa1b90a69e0358b.jpgGreenHeron2.thumb.jpg.4612b457067a431e3f1784fd56eb8416.jpgGreenheron3.thumb.jpg.3391ce8f30a1caeb0f0cc3f993fc827d.jpgGreenheron4.thumb.jpg.acebe29af92912cef9f8ba9e71776c82.jpgGreenHeron5.thumb.jpg.78b66c08710439160176f733b3803d6d.jpg
