A closeup image of a Juvenile Tricolored Heron that I photographed early in the morning years ago as it was foraging in the shallow water along the Wildlife Drive at J.N. Ding Darling NWR in Sanibel, Florida. You can get quite a few closeup images early in the morning as the wading birds are foraging for their morning meal along the Drive. This was an older Juvenile as it’s reddish neck with spots of reddish feathers on their wings and upper back were starting to turn to the darker blue color. I was using a 400mm Canon DO lens with a 1.4X Teleconver on a Canon 1D mkIV.
