Daily Delta Safari Pics

Here are some pics taken during a normal day on the River. The Heron provide me with an endless photo ops whether they are consuming fish fighting with another bird or just chillin on the side of the RiverThe Egret with their majestic grace, never ending hunger for anything that moves and penchant for bugging the local Heron also provide a source of never ending entertainment When the tide is up and the Heron and Egret are sitting in the shade somewhere the hummingbirds buzz around drinking the nectar from the local fauna. These curious little guys will fly into the Houseboat for a quick look around if I leave the screen open, I have yet to get the camera up quick enough to catch them though.No River excursion would be complete without some duck pics. They are by far my favorite subject as well as the most difficult to shoot.The Turtle’s also are very wary and can be a tough photo op, turtle and Duck photo ops together are necessarily rare but usually the are heading somewhere else by the time you spot them and get the camera in focus. My lenses are old and kinda slow. No ride around the block is complete without some photo ops of my number one favorite subject Benny he accompanies me everywhere and rarely produces a bad pic.Sometimes it’s a tough call photo or fish, fishing usually wins as the largemouth bass fishing around here can be spectacular at times.Finally, when your too busy fishing to get a good sunset pic just turn around and get a great shot of the Moon.Thanks for checking out my Blog hope you enjoy.
