Last Night At The Marsh Pond
It was a pleasant evening at the marsh pond last night. I took an overall shot of the pond with the 8mm fisheye just prior to sunset. The usual bird suspects were out doing their thing… we had a great egret and great blue heron fishing successfully. Naturally I had to include the obligatory shot of a young alligator lurking in the side corner of the marsh trying to stay out of trouble, which means keeping out of the way of the larger gators. Very nice evening and I might just go back and do it again tonight!
That are cool pics. The last one is my favorite
Thanks very much and glad you like the little alligator, I almost didn’t include that photo.
I like the alligator shot
That’s so funny you’all like the little guy, I almost didn’t include that pic.
Great shots Phil, the 8mm photo of the pond is super.
Thanks very much Jan, you can’t overuse that lens but every once in a while it works out nicely.
Nice shot of the pond! Love the details in those fish.
Thanks, glad you liked ’em!
Marvelous shots, each and every one…
I appreciate it very much thank you.
Such detail, Phil! Mr other half, a fisherman, tells me the heron and egret are catching perch.
Thanks very much Maggie I appreciate you checking these out. I’m not sure what kind of fish they are, could very well be perch.

That sounds exactly right! Thanks! 😀
The first one is spectacular! Do it again for us 🙂 Thanks, Phil!
Thank you so much Amy, I do indeed have more from tonight! 😀
Nice! Love the Egret photo.
Thanks very much I appreciate you looking and commenting and glad you liked the egret!
It would be a rare night I DIDN’T go to your marsh, Phil. Beautiful, beautiful shots.
Thanks a bunch Sid I’m happy you enjoy photos from the marsh. I have more from tonight’s outing which I’ll be posting soon. 🙂
Fisheye to birds’ eyes to a fish’s eye to the gator’s eyes – the eyes have it, I’d say! More great photos.
Thank you so much Deb!
I like the last one. Calm water makes such nice reflections.
Yeah the water in that area was calm, but weedy.
This doesn’t seem to be a good place to be a fish. It’s a good place for a fish-eye though.
Right on both counts Andrew, bad news for fish but fun for fisheye.
Only one word for these pics, Phil. AWESOME!!!
Appreciate the kind words Sylvia! 🙂
To be honest now, I can’t think a photograph or post without Mr.Alligator 🙂 But seems that he wasn’t invitated to the fish party 🙂 Thanks and Love, nia
I am glad you always look for our alligator friends Nia! They also invite themselves and do not mind spoiling a party. 🙂
I am looking each time now for a sweet young alligator face. Got one! I think the birds and sky take the prize here though. Those are great close up shots of the birds, and love the fish-eye.
I’m so happy you enjoyed these photos, thanks!
Love those fish in beaks!! Amazing!!
Good for the birds, bad for the fish, but so it goes in nature.
Thanks very much for looking and commenting!
Love your sunset, Phil
Well thanks much I appreciate that.
I’m always astounded with the sheer perfection in your images. Something to aspire to Phil.
Well I truly appreciate your very kind comments Emily, thanks!
I really like those closeup bird portraits!
Thanks, I’m happy you enjoy the photos!
