Feed me! Great Egret chicks.

Great Egrets, St Augustine Alligator Farm, St Augustine Florida

The Great Egret chicks must have hatched early this year. The Florida Birding and Photo Fest was a week early, and still the Egret chicks were well grown. They are often tiny in the nest. These chicks were very demanding and mom had a hard time keeping up with their appetite. I like the dark background of shade under the nest tree and the way the foreground foliage makes a bowl for the nest. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode with action and BIF modifications. 1/1000th @ f4 @ ISO 400. Processed in Polarr.
