Nestled in the heart of Lakeland, Florida is Lake Parker; a 2,200 acre lake surrounded by native vegetation. Lake Parker Park, a 100.5 acre city park provides waterfront access to the beautiful wildlife filled marshes. The abundant birdlife here is habituated to human presence providing the photographer with an exceptional opportunity to photograph the birds in their natural setting.
This Tricolored Heron was busily engaged in fishing. Although not a sharp photograph, I find the motion depicted in this photograph appealing.
