It turned out to be another beautiful day at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. No wildlife, but a good day for reflections!

Wakulla Spring

Wakulla Spring is one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world, in addition to being a natural treasure within Florida. This spring discharges 250 million gallons a day. It has a constant water temperature of 69F year round.

The spring offers boat rides throughout the spring river ways where you can see all types of wildlife. This also a favorite place to go swimming and diving. I didn't show it but to the right of this photo is a lodge and a restaurant.

In the last post I said I would show another photograph I made using the Canon 7D Mark ll and canon 70-200mm f/2.8 USM ll without the 2x extender. 

This is a juvenile Black Crowned Night Heron. The sun is hitting him just right, kind of looks like I'm using a flash. I actually used a Circular Polarizer to calm down some of the light and glare.

I took this photo at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge while we still had some birds hanging around. I made this using a Canon 70-200 f2.8 and a 1.4 extender. This is a Stilt Sandpiper, I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I can tell you that I'm not happy using extenders, there not quite sharp enough for me, plus I really didn't have the best of light when I took this. One day I hope to get my hands on a Canon 400 f2.8!

I normally don't photograph cats, but have not been able to travel lately. This cat was chasing squirrels and birds until the king of the backyard came out to photograph his mischievous ways!

Reflections on the East River Pool at St. Marks National wildlife Refuge. In my past visits to the refuge it's really rare to see the water this calm. But I got lucky this day!

One of the clients I have been working for owns his own Biplane. After I finished working on his project I took this for myself.

He said the next time I head out to his airstrip(which is on his property) that he would take me flying! Can't wait to get up there and take some arial photos!!!!

Most people think of herons as blue-grey or white birds with long necks and long legs. The bird in this photo, a black-crowned night heron, is the exception. Why are they named night herons? Because they hunt for food mainly at dusk and early evening. 

Night herons’ necks and yellow legs are short and their bodies are chunky. Compared to white and blue herons (45 inches tall or more), night herons are smaller - about 23 to 28 inches, with a wingspan of about four feet. 

There are seven species of night herons. The black-crowned bird is the most common, ranging all over the United Sates. They travel in groups, but once they land in marsh/estuary areas for a rest, they prefer to keep their distance from their fellow night herons. Like other herons, they hunt for small fish, frogs, snakes, mice, and whatever else looks good to them. 

I photographed this bird in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (Florida, near Tallahassee). He’s a regular visitor to this area in the fall and winter.

I made this photo with the new Canon 7D Mark II, using a Canon 70-200 lens and a Canon 2x extender. The 2x extender reduces sharpness somewhat, but it does work better with prime lenses.

In my next post I'll be showing a photo of a night heron using just the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS ll and the Canon 7D Mark II.

Wonderful photography by this Russian Miner.
 
Did anyone ever find out "what the fox say's" ...sorry! bad weekend joke! GREAT set of photos, these!

http://www.boredpanda.com/wild-fox-photography-ivan-kislov/
Russia's remote north-eastern Chukotka region is an inhospitable arctic tundra, but even in this brutal landscape, Russian photographer Ivan Kislov can find beautiful signs of life among the foxes that live and hunt here in the wild. He agreed to talk to Bored Panda and tell us more about his amazing photos.

A very orange sunset in Florida last night. Still pretty warm here, but won't last for long. I know the Midwest and North East are getting some nasty weather which really stinks. Best of luck for the people in these regions.

This photo was taken at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge.
