Little Blue Heron and White Ibis

Newly Opened Dike

These images were taken in a section of the wildlife management area that I don’t visit often. Until recently you had to climb over fallen trees to get there and the dike is lower, which puts the photographer closer to the water which is good and bad.

Getting a lower prospective and Alligator reflection is good. Being closer to unseen Alligators can scare the &#!% out of a photographer if they move!

Being lower also means less breeze, which much of the year means more mosquitoes. Last week was cooler so there wasn’t much insect activity.

This White Ibis was enjoying the sun and along came a Little Blue Heron.

The Little Blue Heron slowly encroached on the Ibis’  space.
