Went on the Shark Valley Tram tour of the everglades today.

These are pretty much SOOC, with only cropping on the insect photo.

Not sure what this is - One of My Fav photos from today.

Great Blue Heron?

According to the tour Guide - Baby Great Blue Heron - is this correct?

The Tour guide did say what this is - but I didn't write it down.

All with 450D + a rented 100-400L (was rented for the Shuttle launch - photos https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=693906).

A couple of shots could have used a CPL to cut down on the reflected light - but hindsight is wonderful.

Nicely done Daniel...I believe your tour guide is right on the Id...looks like a juvie little blue to me. And that last one I believe is a Limpkin.

Nice series. I'm not sure what the 4th shot is but it definitely is not a Juvenile Great Blue Heron.

I think the Dragonfly may be a Halloween Dennant.

My first thought was "how can he concentrate on shooting #1 when there's #2 in the vicinity?"

Cause I didn't really think of it that way. Actually - the gators in the everglades aren't interested in the humans, they tend to stay away from you. Sure if you go pester them, you may get a reaction that you may not like.

The dragonfly was about a foot off the roadway when I was taking the GBH photos, and the gators below the level of the roadway by a good 3-4 feet (straight down) that it would have taken super gator for there to be any risk.
