More photos from – Middle Concho – Spring Creek


I had gotten several photos during our recent trip to Middle Concho/Spring Creek park, that I described in a previous post.  (Click here)   Here are a few more.

This Great Blue Heron was sitting on the other side of the river on a dead tree limb.  Exposure was 1/1000 sec. @ f8, ISO400.  Canon 7D.  Canon 500mm lens with 1.4 tele-converter, tripod mounted.

  1. Wow!! I love them all..really like the Belted Kingfisher..he is classy..the Great Egret is hard to top especially with the Coots in front..great composition on all of the photos…

    • Yes, we are on a migration route, so we get a pretty good variety of birds here. Thanks for the compliments, however I don’t know I would say spectacular, but If you say so that’s fine with me. 🙂 The photo of the Cinnamon Teal, is not so great, but the best I could get under the circumstances.

      Thanks again, David
