    Today she ate a fish on the lagoon's bridge. This is her wiping her face afterward.

    Some of you now know a bit about Bandit. For the last week we've been hanging out a good deal. This is one more picture from the first three I posted on here since I hadn't seen her for two years. What I believe is cool about this picture is it shows her trust in me. I was 10 feet away from her...

    Osprey with a History 2

    I've known Bandit for four years now. It is used to my whistles and voice. I used to live/kayak a few miles north - hadn't seen her for two years. She flew over yesterday, I called, she landed and preened and preened. It was magical. I know her by the two dots in the iris of her left eye. BTW -...

    Eclipsing little blue heron reflecting on the changes

    Ah, puberty... it can even be scary for birds! This immature (eclipsing) heron greets me on the beach of the Lagoon often. It is immediately unintimidated when I sit down in my kayak.

    This one is more about the claw and the beak of a little blue who let me closely watch its preening.

    Juvenile Little Blue with feather definition

    So often very white or very black birds look like blobs of color. I liked this one because I got some contrast.

    SW Florida - peeps, Least Sandpiper?

    Seen this morning at Lakes Park (somewhat away from the coast). Both Least and Western are supposed to be out of season here during the summer...and it is very summer right now. This group of eight were hanging out with a killdeer, at least a third larger than they were. Thanks!

    This Reddish Egret gave me lots of angles... I stopped shooting after it gave me this pose. Photo is not cropped.

    little blue eclipse

    I've watch this guy for 9 months now. It is not at all intimidated by me until I get out of my kayak! It's got to be uncomfortable to change colors. It just preened and preened. I got so many in focus shots - It's hard to pick two.

    This is a life species for me today - yay! There were two of them, but the other would never come out of the shadows.

    For whatever reason, when I'm in my kayak the birds aren't bothered. It gives me opportunities to see behavior.
  25. Mr Wiggles - yellow crowned night heron in Hudson, FL

    Mr Wiggles - yellow crowned night heron in Hudson, FL

    This bird got its name (it could be male or female) due to its wobbles when it feeds. Heron are usually stock still. Is it excitement over the food?
