Tricolored Heron_Myakka SP
Dancing for Dinner

Went to Myakka State Park on the west coast. They have a nice boardwalk that extends out onto the Myakka River. They call the boardwalk “The Birdwalk.” We did see a variety of birds. But, we enjoyed the antics of this Tricolored Heron the most. It dances around and spreads its wings, to eliminate the reflection, so it can get a better view into the water for little fish food. So clever!

My settings were ISO 100, f/8, 1/250 sec at 218mm (70-300mm). Cropped a little.

  1. Too funny. First glance I thought it was a headless bird. That is so cool that you caught this unusual and unique behavior. Nice!
