On Cayo Santa Maria I found that the bird life was not abundant during my visit, but there were some photogenic and co-operative specimens to be found. There were a few small flocks of Brown Pelicans which for some reason completely disappeared during my last couple of days there. There were numerous Royal Terns, that were a challenge to capture in flight with my slow focusing 80-400 VR lens, however, by tracking them from far down the beach until they were filling the frame my success rate increased considerably. The Great Egrets and Little Blue Herons were a little on the skittish side here and rather difficult to capture. I was able to photograph a rather unique looking heron which will be the subject of an upcoming post.
