I was in several venues last week and here are a few shots from several sites.

Osprey from Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge in Sanibel Island

Loop Road in the Big Cypress Swamp was really active. There are few places that you have very clear shots, the birds are working the shallow water in the trees but here were a couple that I was able to grab.

Little Green Heron

Snowy Egret

Anhinga Trail is starting to heat up, not many herons but a lot of cormorants and anhingas to see up close.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind comments. The weather has been perfect
to shoot lately and I am glad to get back after a layoff.

Thanks for the comments, very appreciated.
Don, I walk down the boardwalk on the trail all the time and this
is the first time I have seen a nest and there were two of them.
One of the nests was very obscured, but this one was fairly open.
