Last Night in St Pete's, Florida

Hi folks,

Before we moved on from this lovely town as we had to because we where running out of time, we stopped off by the shore for dinner,

The wild life was truly amazing and so tame partly due I think to the amount of food about.

This grumpy old Heron was sitting under the bridge not like Kendo's.

Another Egret strutting his stuff on the waters edge looking out for fish.

Under the bridge was where the grumpy Heron was perched, night was now falling.

Sunset wasn't to good either but I liked the cloud formations.

Dark now, this is where we had our dinner, for the technically minded this shot was taken at 800iso, handheld with a lot of post processing. The camera for the whole trip was the Panasonic GH2 and the lens in most cases was the 14-140 zoom, 20mm F1.7 and the 7-14 F4.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, Luv Mike. XXX

  3. Do you think the heron was grumpy, because the egrets had eaten his supper.
    Lovely cloud formation, looks like rain.

  4. A heron with dirty feet he should be ashamed of himself, letting the side down.
