Orlando, Florida – Great Egret

Orlando, Florida - Egret 2

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR

This is the second Great Egret shot from Gatorland.  I assume this guy is taking a “dont mess with me” stance.  He ruffled all his feathers up.  It is neat to see these birds act like normal and to see them interact with each other.  In Gatorland (see my post for more details below), this bird rookery had tons of Great Egrets, Cattle Egrets and Tri-Colored Herons.  I would estimate 500-1000.  So it was a quiet-noisy section of the park.  Really amazing to witness.  I have one more gator shot to post tomorrow and that will be it from Gatorland.   If you are in Orlando…I say check it out!  I will go again later this year!
