Great Egrets In Florida Trees

Now that I am fully retired I am going through files from previous Photo Trips to post. The images here were taken at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Rookery a few years ago. The Featured Image was taken with a Tamron 150-600mm @ 309mm on a Canon R. The Tamron 150-600mm lens worked Great at the Rookery since birds were both near and far in the Rookery giving you a lot of opportunities to get interesting images without carrying a lot of Gear! There were quite a few nests there also since the alligators below the boardwalks helped protect the nests from predators climbing up to raid the nest here!

    • Thanks so much Donna! It is a Great place to photograph! You never know what you will see to photograph! There are so many nests & birds flying around it is a lot to take in. The alligators below the boardwalks keep predators away from the nests so there is a lot of activity!

  1. Great shots, Reed. I have never seen an egret breeding plumage display up here. I am sure it happens but the only images I have seen have been from the south.

    • Thanks! Hope you have a safe & great trip to Florida! If near St. Augustine stop by the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It is a Great Place to photograph birds!
