    Despite staying up late and loosing an hour to daylight savings I was up at dawn for a hike through the swamp to see the Herons again. It was nice before I had to sit down and take Support calls as I’m on all weekend.

    This will give you an idea of how hard it is to get a clear shot of these guys

    Wow, Airic! Another great series. Amazing how you were able to get several birds in one shot. (Were the ones with the bird flying the shots taken as the support calls came in?)

    Good pair of water proof boots. The poor birds have already seen Raymond's butt, no need to put them through more trauma. If you park near the white church you can walk the tree-lined path in to the forest. The best shooting spot is in the north east corner and you may get your toes wet. All I wear is my winter boots. If you have any questions call me.
