    Hi you'll,

    the real stars are the Great Egrets and their chicks

    the snowy egrets provide comic relief

    the cattle egrets were the real surprise

    the tri-color herons played a good supporting role

    the wood storks had a major role too

    Harry -

    Nice recap, and nicer photos. You left out the clear winner of the best comedian award - the fuzzy-headed little GBHs.

    Thanks Frank, You can't ask for a better place to shoot.
     
  12. Nice shots, Harry! Great colors, too! I've been checking out Gatorland in Orlando which also has a rookery. Was planning on going tomorrow but may not with this stupid rain. They apparently have a 3-story platform in the rookery to shoot from. Sounds interesting and is a wee bit closer than St Augustine. I'll let you know once I can get there.
