    yeah, i love them...... i was actually trying to hone in on two mergansers, but the buggers wouldn't stay still.... as i was trying to focus, this dude walked into the frame..... the pics are not as clear as i would like, but at 80x zoom, beggars can't be choosers

    wow that's cool! do you know what type of herons those are? i've actually been spotting a couple herons (great blue maybe?) flying overhead my house every now and then, they probably live in a nearby swamp. there's no way i'll be able to get an up close pic of them! your lucky you can get so close!

    Yeah that's a great blue heron. I saw one in Ohio for the first time because we don't have them here, they are so cool!

    yeah, he's a blue heron - isn't he gorgeous? we've lived here for 15 years, and there has always been at least one in the same spot for that long. we got concerned this year because he moved spots, so we thought he'd disappeared. i was so glad to see him back.
