Heron Chicks at the Rookery

Out at the local heron rookery lots of new families are busy with little ones. Here are two photos of heron chicks that were taken in the last week. Be sure to click on the photos for larger sizes. I hope you like them.

(For those interested, these photos were taken with a Canon 40D using a Sigma 50-500 mm. Effective focal length was 800 mm.)
