Today's post and the next few days will be short, I have not been able to get online with my laptop. It has also given me fits in other ways, vista sucks and I am thinking the whole thing would make a better wheel chock than anything else.
This little bird is a Green Heron, he was photographed in a manner that I am not accustomed to, with the SB-800 flash used as a fill in. This photo was taken at Merritt Island along Blackpoint Drive. My flash photography lacks and it is time to use it more and get some skills. One day last week I had the opportunity to shoot from dark to dark with Klaus at the Viera Wetlands and Merritt Island. For the regular blogger's you already know Klaus from Sky Watch Friday and his site that always features great Florida bird photographs. For those of you not familiars with him follow the link to the left to view his photographs or click here http://virtua-gallery.com/wp/ .
Thankfully Klaus spotted this little fellow or I may have missed him and without him to identify all the different types I would be spending days searching the net trying too identify the different species.

Thanks again Klaus for the invite, knowledge and great day of filling memory cards.
