American Bittern (Botaurus lentiginosus)

Good Monday Morning to y'all! Had a face-off with this gorgeous Bittern yesterday. He happened to be standing off a boardwalk at a wetlands and took offense to my pointing a camera at him. This was his reaction! I promptly left him in peace and thanked him for the photo op.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis)

This fellow was the lucky recipient of a fish from a local fisherman and is smartly flying away with it in his pouch to protect his win.

May you all be blessed with full and enjoyable pouches in 2018!

I've not had much opportunity to photograph the last few months and have missed you all! Hope everyone had a great holiday and that the photographic opportunities are forever in your favor in the upcoming year!

Curve-billed Thrasher (Toxostoma curvirostre)

Another bird from my Arizona trip. These guys were fairly common and quite vocal which was a treat.

Phyrrhuloxia (Cardinalis sinuatus)

Like the punk-rock cousin of a Northern Cardinal! Another bird I wish we had in Florida.

I'm so behind on Flickr and I apologize! I'm blaming Hurricane Irma (gotta blame something, eh?). She was a pain in my emotional ass. And I'm very thankful that's all she was. For a while, I really thought I was going to lose my house. In the end, I had no damage at all and am so thankful; but it was a crazy time.
