Florida - BIFs and swamp waders

Bringing you more from the Florida wetlands, all from the past month or so...here's what we've been seeing down this way as spring gives way to summer.  All shots A580, and lens listed with the shots.

Lesser yellowlegs (Tamron 200-500)

Least bittern (Tamron 200-500)

Rock pigeons in flight - the white one caught my attention as they're not normally that color here (Tamron 200-500)

Another male least bittern (Tamron 200-500)

A double-crested cormorant flying overhead (Tamron 200-500)

Great egret soaring past (Tamron 200-500)

Wood stork coming right at you (Tamron 200-500)

Big Florida softshell turtle hanging out with some smaller slider turtles (Tamron 200-500)

Young great blue heron sitting near its nest (Tamron 200-500)

Black-bellied whistling ducks flying in close formation (Tamron 200-500)

Cattle egret from underneath, backlit angelically by the sun (Tamron 200-500)

In hindsight, I could have said all shots Tamron 200-500mm!  I thought I was going to have a few Minolta 300mms mixed in, but looks like I had enough from just the Tamron to fill up this week.
