I am current I am a snow bird from Canada interested in discovering this area of Florida photographically with others.
I have a few years of experience with my dslr canon, now enjoying my Canon d60. I would say I am stronger than novice, advancing my skills .
Thanks for the note - I'm glad you like the picture.
It's a Least Bittern, the smallest of the herons. The books say they grow to 13", but the few times I've seen them they've looked much smaller than that - no more than half the size. They're quite secretive, so I was lucky to see this one. Actually, it has a nest in a bush at Wakodahatchee, and occasionally she (he?) will come out. And occasionally, one of the chicks will come out - as in the next picture I posted.
