I few weeks ago while in Florida, I traveled over to the Venice Rookery in Venice Florida to take a few pictures of the waterfowl. The rookery is locate in the middle of a small lake and both Great Blue Herons and Egrets nest there. I got up at 5:30 am in the morning so that the lighting would be at its best for photos. Here's what I discovered.
An early morning Great Blue Heron returning from the ocean filled with fish and ready to feed its young one.
Hmmm... eat your regurgitated fish!
An Egret coming in for a landing
Two chicks waiting to be fed as a great blue fly's over.
This is a sand hill crane wandering near the rookery and looking for hoppers.
Remember: Life is short, get away from the big screen and get on a big stream!
