  2. Great shots Harry. Those snowy babies are so ugly, they're cute. Guess they grow into their beaks. I know I did.

    Hey Harris,

    Those are Great Egret chicks and they are ugly and nosiy. Everytime I see them I flash back tp the raptors in Jurassic Park. :D

    I just got an e-mail from the rookery saying that the snowy egret and tri-colored heron eggs have begun to hatch so there should be lots of action to shoot later this month and next.

    Harry,

    These are awesome. Were these taken at the Alligator Farm?

    The pics are beautiful Harry. Excellent job.
     
  7. Magnificent shots, Harry! I hope I'll get to get some shots of those Roseates. I lived in Cocoa for 5 yrs and don't ever recall seeing them.

    The chicks in the last shot remind me of some of my co-workers! :twisted:

    Hey Frank,

    Yep, they were shot at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. I'm headed up there again tomorrow with 3 other photographers. I've been told that the snowy egret and the tricolor heron eggs have begun to hatch.

    I really enjoy looking at these heron shots that everybody posts, they are far more pleasing than the regular Great Blue. Nice shots!!!!

  15. Geez, I am SO JEALOUS :!: These are gorgeous, I've got to get my butt down to your corner of the world....Wow......

    And your weather is nicer now too :lol:

    Super stuff, thanks.....
     
  16. And a question re: the Alligator Farm. Many of the "commercial" places around have specific prohibitions against sale of any image taken on their premises. Is that the case at this Alligator Farm as well?
     
  17. Hey Harry, that male and his color is fantastic. A real show stopper.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thank you very much. I've seen roseates this year at the Viera Wetlands, Merritt Island and at the St. Augustine Rookery so they are around. Hopefully you'll catch one soon.
