Q: In Need of Inspiration in Tampa and Surrounding Areas

A: Do you know?

This white heron is busy sunning himself in the warm Florida sunshine (80°F). To me, he resembled the supersonic Concorde with his pointed bill and outspread backwings.
Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park, Florida

    Are you sure this is a heron? I've never seen a white one. On the other hand, it doesn't look quite like an egret either. Nice shot anyway !!!

    He is posing over pretty for you..Those cut pieces of wood are interesting behind him also wrapped in place with ropes...I like the shadow of the bird's head, neck and beak against the rope.

    a masterful capture--this works for so many reasons; however, that shadow of the head is amazing

    A really great capture, Don. Not an easy one since he reflects so much light.
