Took a quick visit to St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Rookery last week. I was primarily interested in the Rookery and was not disappointed. Hundreds of birds were in the trees actively nesting, displaying, mating and tending to their chicks while predatory alligators were waiting below for any little chick that may fall from a nest.

  1. I never thought a snowy and great egret could be so beautiful - such eye-catching photographs! What a trip you must've had to the rookery:)

  2. Birds are so bold, and most have nothing to back up the boldness except bravery and vanity. These photos are wonderful
