This past week I had the opportunity to join friends and a bird photograph expert on his boat and travelled to a local rookery. Armed with my camera and a rented Canon EF 100-400mm lens, I had the time of my life. He organizes trips several months in the Spring and this day we were able to see many varieties of birds in flight, bringing in nesting materials and feeding their babies. This shot of a Great Blue Heron baby is really enjoying its mealtime! BTW, I can’t wait until next year and hopefully be using my own 100-400mm long distance lens!
