I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Last week we had a good size crowd of wood storks coming and going all evening. They almost always arrived one at a time and they kept at it for about an hour and a half until the entire salt marsh area was warmed by setting sunlight.
Beautiful pictures, I love the colors….
Thanks Linda, glad to know you enjoyed seeing the wood stork flights.
Really awesome shots, Phil. Lucky you to have so many of these birds visiting. 🙂
Thank you Sylvia, too pink our pink friends left so early but I have lots of file shots of them to keep me busy for a while. 🙂
That’s a photographer’s dream and you took full advantage.
Well their faces could be considered more of a nightmare to some, but I like them fine. Plus I’m trying to take advantage of these big guys while I can because like the spoonies, the storks will soon move on.
I do love your evening light, Phil! The clarity of these pictures is brilliant!
It’s my favorite time out there Maggie, thanks for looking!
I just love the wood storks. The sunset light in the last shot is so pretty. These guys are fun to see, and I like how their flight(s) was captured. Sounds like it was a busy airport evening! 🙂
It was busy out there! Air traffic control had apparently lost all control. These guys were coming in from all directions! 🙂
You always post beautiful images, Phil, and these are no exception. Great captures!
I greatly appreciate that Katrina, thank you!
