This Little Blue Heron is maturing nicely but the remaining white coloration of its chest feathers shows that it is still a young bird.

Our Mission is to promote conservation, education, and restoration of wildlife and wild places by encouraging people to experience nature through photography.
It’s simple, really. The advent of the digital camera has spurred a huge revival in photography as a hobby. Many new photographers are inspired by the wonderful images that they have seen of the natural world and would like to try to create similar images. However, it takes more than just a camera to truly represent nature’s beauty. You have to have a certain amount of determination and, most of all, an understanding of the environment itself, in order to capture it in a photograph. That’s what EPS is all about. EPS strives to help and encourage the budding nature photographer to look beyond just taking images and to help preserve the environments that make taking these inspirational photographs possible.
