Hello World

It was my privilege to be present today at Gatorland in Kissimmee when at the breeding marshes two egrets hatched in front of our eyes. Mother was very attentive and cleaned up by throwing out the empty eggs almost immediately and by supplying food in the form of an oversized fish for the kids. We couldn’t get to close and finding a decent angle to take photographs wasn’t that easy as she kept sitting down on them and twigs from the nest build were in the way of getting clean shots without being a contortionist..

Here a few images to savour with more to follow.
