Welcome to the Pine River Review.

World Bird Wednesday XIII
"A porpoise with a purpose," She responds. Right! I am super-tourist with my over sized lens hanging from my neck like a wacky medallion and my neck as pink as an embarrassed flamingo. This is how we roll.
These little Heron nestlings are residents of the Venice Rookery a tiny patch of bird paradise packed with a menagerie of exotic bird life. I will be spending hours identifying the treasures stored on my SD card.
Now, back to the beach for one last time!
Now it's time for World Bird Wednesday XIII

Sounds like Florida was a great choice for your vacation.Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely images.ReplyDelete
Great photos of the Herons. Your vacation sounds fantastic.ReplyDelete
Nice shooting Springman. Sounds like you'll need another holiday just to review all those shots from Florida.ReplyDelete
Fantastic photos, particularly the first one with the two young herons huddling together. I always would like to mention how much I like your header photo - such exquisite detail!ReplyDelete
Sounds like perfect holidays! Fabulous photos!ReplyDelete
Have a nice evening:)
Great photos! :)ReplyDelete
Seeing all of those herons must have been thrilling. I'm looking forward to more fabulous pictures from Florida.ReplyDelete
I am having computer issues so my Linky Link pic failed to load.
Those shots are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
And I did mention that I am so totally NOT envious, right?!
Awesome shots of the Great Blue Herons Dave! I can't wait to see more of your Florida trip!ReplyDelete
Who wouldn't love those shots of the Great Blue Herons? I'm glad y'all had a great birding trip!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you all are having a birding good time. MBReplyDelete
Those are amazing shots of the Herons! Sounds like a delightful trip.ReplyDelete
That is great shots. :)ReplyDelete
Amazing captures as usual! Glad you enjoyed you time off in warm Florida.ReplyDelete
The photo of the heron should be framed & hung in your living room! Great photos,sounds like you both had a great vacation,phyllisoReplyDelete
Oh, I will always remember Florida as a birder's paradise. Looking forward to seeing more of your FL birds!ReplyDelete
I love great blue herons -- and you got fabulous pictures. I hope you're not freezing to death after getting back home. (When we lived in rainy Oregon, that was always the trouble with Winter vacations.) No more worries about that now (but of course the downside is that we're old ;>)!)ReplyDelete
Ah! I thought I already commented on this one, guess it was all in my head! Those chicks are awfully cute. I think I love 'em! My husband is headed to FL in about three weeks to go birding. I'm a little jealous, but I'll already be in Texas working so he's gotta go solo this time. Hope to go sometime later in the summer at least. Hope you guys had a blast!ReplyDelete
Springman thanks for the nice comments on my blog and no I didn't get a picture of the car. Too funny!! MBReplyDelete
Hi - thanks for the comment on my Black-Shouldered Kite. Did not really know it was looking straight down the barrel of the lens until I took it off the camera - have to say I was rather pleased!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the whole WBW thing!
NICE! Can't wait to see more shots from Florida!ReplyDelete
Your shots are awesome! My photos pale in comparison so I'd hesitate to link in to one of your WBW sites!ReplyDelete
We get herons here all the time but I've never had the privilege of seeing their young. Ugly little critters, aren't they?! :)
