Pic of the Day

Roseate Spoonbill, Platalea ajaja:  Saint Augustine Alligator Farm; 
Saint Augustine, Florida
    The natural rookery at the Saint Augustine Alligator Farm is quite active even though most of the birds have not arrived.  Great Egrets, Woodstorks, and Roseate Spoonbill are building, some have built and have eggs and some already have chicks.  This pair of spoonbills appear to have eggs, as the female was sitting all morning.  This particular nest is in a good place for photography, though it is quite far from the boardwalk.  This image has been cropped to about half of a full frame.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f/4, 1/320 second @ f/8
