I took a stroll up and down the Great River Walk (Dubuque) last week and made a few images of wildlife that I enjoy photographing. I have four images today.
This Great Egret was actually at the 16th Street Basin. Although the city has made an effort to clean the debris from the area it remains inundated with all sorts of garbage. I cannot believe the insensitivity of some with regards to this wonderful place.
You know, if you’ve followed my photography for very long, that I cannot pass up a chance at photographing a Blue Heron. The River Walk is high enough and just far enough to allow a great shot with a long lens without stressing the bird too much.
At one end of the River Walk is the barge staging area where they put together barges and load them up. I had to capture these gulls taking advantage of this temporary resting place.
On my way back I found this guy resting. So like the one before I had to take the shot.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
