It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted anything from my tropical work/photography, so I though we should change that today. While and other Migrants do have elegant plumage, tanagers of the tropics can’t be beat, especially some of the rich electric colors. The Blue Dacnis, truly have electric plumage, it’s unmistakable as they streak across the canopy, lighting up even the darker foliage.
This Cattle Egret has been seen at San Joaquin Marsh for the past month of so. This morning, it was flushed out of pond C and landed on the path. Had the perfect angle and light for a great photo opportunity. -
