Great Egret Nests

This is the time of year the drama plays out. Where nests are built, fighting among the adults, and survival of each chick.

Shooting this is a combination of wonder and at times horror.

It might be hard to tell but these are 2 different nests in a swamp cypress tree.

Even while these small birds are being raised, almost within reaching distance, 5 foot (1.5 m) tall Herons are taking their first flights.

    1. LOL, that is an exact joke we share when breeding season first starts ๐Ÿ˜€. Larger Herons are just flying now so that might be nice less thing to point at soon ๐Ÿ˜€. I need to remember these times when itโ€™s late summer and I am out hunting for something to photograph.
