A wonderful day Sunday shooting the abundant birds and wildlife at this Delray, Florida wetlands park...the sheer diversity of species there was amazing, and fresh off winter breeding, lots of young chicks were born. Most shots taken at full telephoto with a 1.7x telephoto extender (732mm optical total). A scarlet macaw who has taken up residence in the wetlands: Three aningha chicks scream to momma to feed them: Very large alligator resting on shore, covered in moss: Great egret on the hunt for fish: Ducklings in mom's wake as she guides them through the grasses: Tri-colored heron: Blue heron chick taking a look around out of the nest, with a pose just like her momma above her: A very colorful, and fairly rare duck - this is a black-bellied whistling duck: An excellent little fisherman, this is a least tern: Here, a moorhen momma feeds her two newborn chicks, with eyes only just opened: A blue heron sits down on its nest, on guard for any intruders: A link to my gallery from this visit - 69 photos: http://www.pbase.com/zackiedawg/wakodahatchee_wetlands Visits welcome. Comments, critique, questions welcome. Always looking to improve! I am very happy I found this location, and intend to go back often...it's an amazing wildlife location, open sunrise to sunset, and free.
