Framed in Red

Today’s post features a pair of nesting Great Egrets, in brilliant breeding plumage, that I captured a few years ago at the Venice Rookery, in Venice, Florida.

Great Egret nesting pair

The red-berried plant is a Brazilian Pepper. Although quite photogenic, it’s roots are many and can extend for long distances to drink up water, making it an unwanted, invasive plant.

  • Canon 500mm f/4 IS lens
  • Bogen 3221 with Wemberly gimbal head
