  1. drove down to the Wachodahatchee Wetlands with SteveS. Great place, boardwalk all thru it, babies in nests..

    saw a little greenie fishing:

    then in the middle of this clump of some type of greenerie was a Least Bittern nest with babies. I had to manually focus into the nest for some, then the baby decided to come out and say hello. Some guy there with a camera doubted I would get a shot of the chick in the nest. Thats why god invented MANUAL FOCUS:Angel: :
