Green Cay & Wakodahatchee Wetlands

January 21, 2011 Wildlife Photography  One comment

I had to head down south to Broward county this week so I figured I’d stay over and hit a couple of wildlife spots while I was there.  One is Green Cay Wetlands which is in Delray and there’s also Wakodahatchee Wetlands which is also right around the corner.  The day started off really cloudy and foggy but when it came to the birds I wanted (the Sora and Snipe) the weather somewhat behaved!

And this is George…he’s a Great Blue Heron with a pretty serious looking injury, there’s a hole below his beak where his tongue sticks out!  I’m told he’s still going strong despite his handicap and has been out there for several breeding seasons.  Go George!

I’m seriously considering getting the Canon 400mm f5.6 L prime lens.  I normally use the Canon zoom 100-400mm f4/5.6 USM IS L lens, but I rarely use it at anything other than 400mm.  So…I’m going to rent it next week and try it out.  If I like it, and buy one, the 100-400mm L will be for sale…which is what took all of the photos you’ve seen above ;-)

    The 400mm prime has been on my wish list for some time. I’d be interested in hearing how it performs. I might also be interested in the 100-400 zoom…

    Great photos btw!
