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.
