Okreb's recent activity

  • Kozmo, thanks for your very gracious remarks. My images are very far from being Smithsonian quality, very far from being so. But thanks again for your comments.
  • Very nice habitat series.
  • Hi Judy, I love the Avocet. Nice shooting.
  • Bob, nice series. I especially like the Bittern and the Skimmer.
  • Here in south Florida, we are still experiencing daily temperatures in the 90's, coupled with torrential daily rains, so no photographing this week. The posts that follow are from the recent archives.
  • Brad, all these birds are regulars annually at the south Florida wetlands. The Roseate Spoonbill is in South Florida, Cuba, Haiti/Dominican Rep. and the coastal gulf area in Texas and Mexico down ...
  • The temperature every day this past week was in the low 90's with periods of heavy rain. Not many birds about and I was not ready to go out in this outlandish weather. Here are a few from the ...
  • For the past 6 months or so, I have posted images of the Wood Storks that are nesting in the local wetlands. There were about 20-30 nests with about 2 adults and 2-3 nestlings in each nest. Last ...
  • Hi Peter, Thank you for your kind remarks. Yes, there are a few nests where the adults are still feeding the young ones but not as often as before. Some Wood Storks, Great Egrets, Cattle Egrets are ...
  • Replied in Egrets
    Hi Richard, Nice series of the little ones. One question: Why ISO 500? The images appear to be made in bright sunlight.
  • Replied in Utah birds
    Hi Judy, This is a very nice habitat series. I like the Grebes because I have never seen these western birds.
  • In the local wetlands this time of year, we have mostly juveniles who have recently fledged and are not too adept at feeding themselves. Most of the adults have moved on with a few exceptions.   ...
  • Hi Peter, This is a man-made wetland. Although this site is many years old, to see what it is like, click on the link: www.pbcgov.com/waterutilities/ wakodahatchee /
  • Replied in whoops, a typo
    In the southern portion of the Everglades, we do have Great White Egrets and Great Blue Herons mate at times. The result is a Great White Heron which, I believe, is a slightly larger bird than ...
  • Nice portraits of a Great White EGRET. Your title says Heron.
  • We have had over 90 degree temperatures every day this past week. Most of the birds are seeking shelter or have migrated north. Here are a few from this week, all made with the E-M1 and the ...
  • Yes, the Anhinga is a close cousin of the Double-crested Cormorant. -- Milt Author of 'Brain Surgery, Self Taught' Gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/okreb1
  • Bob, I like the Avocets reflections the best. The first image is a Snowy Egret.
  • Brad, I like these, especially the first Night Heron. Here in south Florida it is difficult to get them posing out in the open in the daytime.
  • Richard, nice series BIF at nest-building time. Love them.
