White-faced Heron

Surprise, a blog name change!  It seemed appropriate, since Caroles Creative Corner, had slowly evolved into this, my passion.  That is, combining both a love of birds, with taking photos of them.  Along-with birds, there'll be a sprinkling of location and scenery shots some times too.

Yesterday, at Wyong, N.S.W., with tele-converter lens, hand-held.  Click on any photo to see the larger version ...

My bird reference book describes voice as a 'harsh, metallic croak'

Hi Carole,

what a beautiful heron is this. I really never seen. Your series is an omen which experience and I enjoy it, too. Very nice color and composition. Compliment.
You name change will fix soon get used to it.

Kind regards, Helma

Sorry for my late response but I had a week no internet.

What a fantastic series, Carole!! I love White-faced Herons!
I'm interested in your teleconverter as I'd love to get closer to birds but the Canon teleconverters only fit on the prime lenses (which I definitely can't afford).
