    Snack Time!

    I was in school last week in South Florida, USA. The school had a Koi pond surrounded by landscaping. My wife and I braved the heat and spent some time with this turtle and pond-mates. Shot with a Nikon Z fc, and 55-250mm DX. Jeremy
  2. I have been quite busy of late with workshop clients, but thought I would post a few from this past weekend. The first birds that really start nesting this time of year in Florida are the Great Blue Herons. The colors and additional feathers really make for great photography subjects. These were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 300 f/4 AF-S, non VR, lens, handheld. I am off in 10 days to the Seattle area for three mornings of eagle photography down the Skagit River. This time of year with the end of the salmon run hundreds of eagles gather for the feast.
  3. The Florida scrub jay (Aphelocoma coerulescens[A]) is one of the species of scrub jay native to North America. It is the only species of bird endemic to the U.S. state of Florida and one of only 15 species endemic to the continental United States. It is found only in Florida scrub habitat, an ecosystem that exists only in central and sometimes south Florida and is characterized by nutrient-poor soil, occasional drought, and frequent wildfires. They are omnivorous and eat a wide variety of acorns, seeds, peanuts, insects, tree frogs, turtles, snakes, lizards, and young mice. Scrub habitat has dwindled considerably in the past several decades as Florida has continued to develop. The IUCN classifies this species as vulnerable to extinction. These both were taken with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 70-200 f/4 G, VR lens with the Nikon 1.4E III TC, iso 1250, handheld.
  4. Our Florida Bald Eagle Pairs are returning to their nests to start building for the next generation. I just returned from a visit to one of these nests and really was able to captured some nice action as the pair built back their nest from last year. This one is the first one I processed, and thought I would share. Captured with the Nikon D500 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens.

    Local Patch

    One of a few local, well local to me, wetlands is the Viera Wetlands, in Viera, Florida. There is usually always some action, but starting in mid October through to April or so the action is really great. Not only does the activity get better but the birds get that much more attractive due to them trying to get breeding partners. These were taken with the Nikon D810 and Nikon 500 f/4E, FL, ED, VR lens, with and without the Nikon 1.4E III TC. This was end of last year prior to the D500 coming out. The female belted kingfisher is my favorite!

  8. This roseate spoonbill was imaged about two weeks ago while wading around in Tampa Bay, trying not to step on a ray. Always a fun place to be D4 500 f/6.3 1/3200s ISO 800 I liked the arrangement of the masses in the image, and of course the nicely colored plumage. Advice and comments always appreciated. View large, please. Cheers Randy
  9. Taken last week in Florida. Although there were two large chicks in the nest, the mom kept on dragging in more building material. At one point see had a large branch, and while trying to place it, hit one of the chicks in the head multiple times ! Was afraid she would knock him out of the nest! D4 500mm F/4 . Slight crop for comp. Advice and comments always appreciated. Please view large Cheers Randy
  10. This white morph of a reddish egret was captured at Little Estero in Florida. It was a very cool, early morn when shot, and he was rather tucked in and not moving around much. Even in Florida rare to get this close to one. D300 70-200 f/2.8 78mm f/6.3 1/640s ISO 320 A bit of fill flash to help him pop in the dim light I liked the extra sense of depth provided by the small spit of sand/trees running behind the bird. The water looked almost like ice that morning. Please view large Comments and advice always appreciated. Cheers Randy
  11. This handsome fellow was taken while standing waist deep in Tampa Bay as he flared to land in front of the mangroves. D4 600VR TC14 f/6.3 1/3200s ISO 640 Tripod mounted I liked the separation from the dark background and the pose. Advice and comments always appreciated. Please view large Cheers Randy
  12. This colorful fellow was imaged several weeks ago while standing in Tampa Bay. The greenery in the background are the mangroves growing on the small island where he was hanging out. Reddish egret are great subjects, as they are quite pugnacious, and are always chasing each other around. D4 600VR TC14 f/6.3 1/3200s ISO 640 tripod mounted Please click to see large version Advice and comments always appreciated Cheers Randy
  13. I had a few hours while on vacation in Orlando, Fl with my family, to scout the Gatorland site. 1st time there, and it certainly is an interesting place, with nesting birds within arms reach off the board walk. Getting clean shots however isn't easy. The light was dull but useable. I liked the leaning pose in this fellow. D4 70-300 VR 270mm f/7.1 1/1000s Iso 1600 hand held Advice and comments always appreciated. Click for larger image. Cheers Randy

    Calm before the storm

    This large gator was showing off a bit at Gatorland, in Orlando, FL. He seemed quite proud of himself and held this position for a couple of minutes. A nearby, and even larger gator took offense to the posing, and lunged and snapped at him. I missed that, having loaned my camera to my wife. She was so startled by the attack that she forgot to push the button. At least she didn't drop the camera into the swamp! D4 70-300VR @f/5.6 300mm 1/1000s ISO 1000 Click to view large. Advice and comments always appreciated. Cheers Randy

    Roseate Spoonbill - eye contact

    This roseate spoonbill was imaged last Feb. while kneeling in Tampa Bay. He kept coming closer and closer. This is essentially full frame, with canvas added inf. and slight balancing crop from right. D300 500mm AFS @ f.7.1 TC14 ISO 320 Click to view it large. Comments and advice always appreciated. Cheers Randy
