Some more Gatorland Rookery shots

May 5, 2005
Orlando, Florida
Spent the afternoon yesterday at Gatorland, again. For Florida residents, when you buy an admission it's good for the rest of the year. Figured that will allow me to go back and practice quite a bit. ;)

I'm really beginning to appreciate this Rookery for the different perspective you can shoot flying birds. Being up high on either the 2nd or 3rd level gives you a background of either the trees/bush or the pond below. You still can do sky shots but I thought these would be more interesting.

I saw this scene and was intrigued by it. It showcases life at the Rookery pretty well. The shot previous to this one was with the birds all looking at each other, like they were speaking. This one, they've got a cautious eye on the gator lurking just below them.

Please feel free to comment. I've got more to pp and post of other types of birds.
