Birds, Hard at Work in the Everglades

These birds were not on vacation.

This one was busy keeping a close watch on us.


This one was on nest duty:


And this bird plucked dinner out of the waters. . .

. . . and then sat and considered how to prepare dinner. Saute or baked? Or just gobble it down whole?

Hi Esther. I was using the 70-300mm Nikon lens at 300 mm. I shot in raw, ISO 400, f/8, 1/800. It was about 4pm, so it was still I bright day, so with a tripod and somewhat high ISO, I could go to such a shutter speed to help get clarity.

Love the nest duty shot! I think that one is warning you to stay back :)
