We got out a little late on a bright day for our third ride. Harsh light and shadows.

This set contains the highlights of those creatures next to the trail.

Any ideas on number 3? Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Wonderful photos but a couple could be better with increased exposure that you can do in post processing.
Merlin Bird ID thinks #3 is a Great Blue Heron. It's the only similar species in range. Except for the color of the bill, this is probably correct. I don't recall ever seeing a Great Blue with a bluish bill.

Thanks for your kind comments. The darker shots present what I saw. I could increase exposure, but lately I am going more for sharing what I saw.

The bike trail makes for fun variety, Rob. That spot is just off the tenth hole tee and seems to be a favorite among the birds.

Nicely done, Mike. #3 is a Night Heron, I believe.
