Great Egret, Ardea alba
Saint Augustine Alligator Farm; Saint Augustine, Florida
Great Egret standing on its nest at the alligator farm in Saint Augustine, Florida. Nesting is well underway and more species arriving each day. I will be back at the end of the month to shoot more of these beautiful birds in the rookery. By the end of the month the rookery will be livelier than it was four weeks ago. This is a great place to shoot. If you are not a photographer, it's just a great place to be close to these wonderful birds.
