TriColor? Louisianna? I'm So Confused...
When you are lucky enough to be on a Florida marsh on a clear sunny day in the fall with no bugs, great light, and a mirror surface to the water, you are living.
This heron was catching minnows as I drifted by and it was such a good fishing spot, he decided to stay and pose for a shot. At some point in my life, the name changed on this guy. I tend to call 'em by the name I first learned so when the international bird nerd committee makes a name change...like green heron to green-backed heron, I tend to be slow to change.
This paddle through a fall freshwater marsh was full of otters, gators sunning, and some beautiful birds. They didn't seem to mind me...probably it was too cold to move for anything less than overt threats.
Unlike Swamp4me, I did not get a great otter shot, but I do have a few other shots from this perfect day to share.
There are days in our lives that are so fine, you wonder if you could ever repeat them.
This was one of those...
