    Default Great Egret Chicks..

    This year Dottie and I purchased photographers passes for the season at Gatorland, Orlando, Florida. This enabled us to follow the progress of the birds from building the nests, sitting on eggs, the eggs hatching, and now the chicks. The growth of the chicks from week to week is quite remarkable. Right now they are of the age of harassing and tormenting each other. Sibling rivalry, I guess. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Great shot, Joe. Love the interaction, and the bright white plumage.

    I like the interaction, sharpness. A bit tight in the frame, but I imagine you wanted to minimize the busy surroundings. Ideally the individual to our left would also be sunlit. It must be fun to document the nesting progress!
