Here’s a portrait of a young Wood Stork in Parrish Park, Titusville from a few weeks ago. I think these birds are interesting and I like the sharp focus and the blurred background isolating the subject.
You don’t often see these in urban settings and I’d never spotted one before I got more into wildlife photography here in Florida around 2006. Adults don’t have feathers on their head and upper neck, so this one with its feathers up there mostly gone is a young adult.
Anyway, the reason I wanted to show you this is because this photo reminded me again just how lucky all of us photographers are to be able to use modern cameras and lenses.
The detail you can see in this crop is amazing! There are clouds reflected in its eye and you can easily see sharp individual feather barbules! I guess my point is, get out your camera gear and use it. You might be surprised by what it reveals.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Hang in there, cherish your friends and loved ones, and take care of each other. And if you can – make some photos!
