    I've got to put Gatorland on my list. #1 is a "salty" (a saltwater crocodile); I didn't realize they had one there. Nice job of exposure on the egrets, the whites are ncely done.

    Nice set and great job on those whites.

    First image is, of course, my favourite!
     
  4. Thanks, Dave and Holmes! I have many, many more images from Gatorland but haven't yet processed them. Yes, shooting in Florida was a great reinforcer of lessons in shooting very white birds in bright sunshine with blue skies or water!!!

    Of every place we went during Merritt VI, I would say that the island was my very, very favorite, with Gatorland being my second favorite..... I was surprised, as I'd thought Gatorland was going to be some kind of tourist thing meant mainly for kids, but the rookery there is absolutely spectacular and the bird population throughout the park is varied and large. While the gators were interesting enough, the real attraction for me was those birdies.....
     
  5. I love the first one. I have never been to Gatorland but want to try it this year.. thanks for sharing.

  6. I absolutely LOVED Gatorland! It was just wonderful being right there with all those gorgeous birds.....They're relatively used to people so go wandering around among us or if a human ventures too close to them while perched somewhere they're not as skittish. Definitely a place to visit!
