Easy Street Park 2 - A Day Outing

Photographed on February 4, 2018

After I had such a great morning at Easy Street Park I couldn't resist another visit a couple days later.  It was to be another clear sunny morning so I arrived again before sunrise with the hopes of some different species and maybe a closer view of the Pied-billed Grebe.  I was not to be disappointed when right at first light the grebe swam in incredibly close and gave me ample opportunity for a variety of photos.  Shortly after the grebe swam away a Tricolored Heron showed up and put on one of the most amazing shows directly in front of me!  They are one of my favorite herons with incredibly striking plumage and a very active hunting style.  This bird moved all around me but stayed put in the one corner.  I was able to get full body shots, close stalking shots, head shots and tons of splashing action.  It was incredible and a morning I will not soon forget.  

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
