From time to time I take my camera to Wilde Lake and wait for some god photos to happen. Earlier this week was one of the good days; Woodpeckers, Great Blue Herons, Black Crowned Night Herons, and an Osprey. Unfortunately the Black Crowned was hiding and I didn’t get a chance to shoot it. There was also a reported sighting of a Yellow Heron, and of course plenty of Canada Geese. The Osprey just made one turn overhead, not a good photo-op. So I’ll just leave you with what I think are some good shots.
There are two nests of Green herons, with about 4 or 5 chicks in each of them. Today they were big enough to fly, but still stayed around ‘home’. I was able to get some shots of one of the nests while the chicks were just fighting for the best place on the tree branch to get fed. While the adult just stood by and watched.
