Pic of the Day

     Common Egret on Nest – Saint Augustine Alligator Farm; Saint Augustine, Florida:  While strolling along the boardwalk at the alligator farm I found a great angle on this egret nest.  When I spotted the nest the adult was absent, but soon after setting-up the camera the adult arrived.   Expecting food, the nestlings that had been docile and inconspicuous, leaped up and began begging for food.  Once the nestlings discovered there was no food they stood still long enough from me to get a shot with sufficient depth of field to keep both the adult and nestlings sharp.
