p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Greenie Palooza!


Its been a while since I've done any wildlife shooting and I sure do miss it. I had a chance to shoot in the everglades last week and really had a great time.

My wife's family has a reunion every two years in South Florida, the last two times I've gone out to the glades and due to the time of year (heat, mosquitoes, and rain)) I just did not do very well. I can tell you July is not the prime time to visit the Everglades!

Anyway this year I was not going to go but I figured I'd give it a shot, I got there about 7AM and the first 45 minutes was just me and some gators!

As I was walking on one of the trails I saw a Great Egret, not a great find but hey its a bird so I set up to take some photos.



As I was snapping some shots I heard the familiar sound of a green heron, I looked to my left and found this guy



He was the first of 3 Greenies I was able to shoot that day, I literally have about 250 images of them. This was a real treat for me as they are one of my favorite birds to shoot but not easy to find in my area.
Sorry for the long story
Anyway here are some of the images, all were shot with my new 800E and a 3002.8 VR I also used a 1.7TC on a couple

Found this guy when I was taking some landscape shots he must have caught 6 or more fish while I was watching him

Hey Greg - I'm glad to see you posting again. The egret is nice, but you did great with the GH. I've not seen one stretch quite as much as in 3. All the wading shots are extra nice, and the action shots are super ~ Ron

Thanks Kevin, Surprisingly the mosquitoes were not to bad this year. In the past I've given at least a pint of blood to the little fellas but this year was not bad

Enjoyed the GH series, Greg!
I like the rich color tonality of the image (except for the first one: on my monitor looks like the WB is a bit off).
Great catch sequence! Good to see you back

Whoooo whoooooo! Hey there buddy how the heck you doing!

Oh man you had your good time with that Green Heron! How about # 3
#5 is super, #6 with less to the right IMO, and #8 and #9 for the win!

Take care Greg
