I am still ‘rehabbing’, you might say. I am getting out to do my regular thing, but still taking it easy and not trying to over do. Just a little drive by the river netted me these shots of a Green Heron. He was about 125 yards away, on the other bank. In no hurry, I suspect because of the 105 heat that day, he just sat and squirmed and preened. I used my Canon 7D and 500mm f4 lens with a 1.4 tele-converter. I maneuvered my car into position so I could shoot from the drivers side resting my camera and lens on my ©Noodle.
Glad that you’re taking things easy, Bob. Great shots of the heron, though! And 105F sounds very hot to me! It’s 10 Celsius here which I think is about 50F.
It is a bit cooler now. down to the mid 90s. Much better.
Glad you’re not over doing things Bob! (: 105 temps? Wow! We were down to 45 last night, but up to 80 during the day. Keep taking care of yourself!
Our temps are returning to normal, about 95 for this time of September. Very nice.
Lovely noodle shot, have to get one, thanks MJ
They are very handy, MJ.
Beautiful birds Bob, lovely colors on this green heron. Hope you are feeling better soon.
I’m feeling great now. Thanks,Martina.
Sorry to hear about your surgeries. Hope it doesn’t put a damper on your W TX trip.
Oh, we are definitely planning on being there. I am nearly 100% recovered, Carolyn so we are planning on seeing you in a couple of weeks. 🙂
glad to see you out and about!
Thanks, Derrick, I am feeling pretty darned good. 🙂
Excellent to hear!!!
Oh! Bob! These are stunning. Perhaps it’s a good thing you’re slowing down… so you don’t miss things like this. I can just imagine the joy this fellow must have given you as you got such great shots! Glad you’re back….
Merrill, I so appreciate your nice comments. Thank you so much. 🙂
I was over at the Lily Garden about 2 this afternoon and saw a green heron perched on the rail around one of the ponds.
The Water Lily Garden is a great spot to see those Green Herons. I’ve seen many there in the past.
Got to love those Noodles 🙂
Glad you are getting out and taking it easy Bob. Love the poses.
Thanks, Mia. The Noodles are great as long as you don’t let them blow off as you fly down the highway. Right? 🙂
Nice capture on the 2nd one! Glad to read you’re back to noodling around so soon.
Hey, nothing’s gonna keep me down for long. Thanks for the comment, Shannon.
I love it..this bird looks like he is totally bored with life..no doubt the heat..great shots…take care of yourself and get recooped..
I agree with your accessment of the heron. He is bored. Thanks, Syl.
