Great Egrets – St Augustine, Florida

The grace of Florida’s Great Egrets is simply amazing. While I was in Florida for the winter art fairs I had time to spend in St Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. The rookery where I spent most of the week was wonderful and allowed me to enjoy the spring nesting rituals of the Great Egrets and several other Florida birds.

This nesting pair of Great Egrets reminded me of an oriental painting. By using the Canvas setting in the Texture pallet in the Filter Gallery of Photoshop CS6 I was able to give this image the feel of an Oriental Painting.

Egret – St. Augustine Alligator Farm

This week I am spending a little time in Saint Augustine photographing Sunrise and Sunsets near in the historic sections and in the harbor. Shortly after sunrise I spent a little time at the Alligator farm photographing some of the birds. It is the mating season and tall of the males are showing off which makes it a fun time to photograph the Rookery. This little Egret was putting a lot in energy looking for a mate and provided entertainment and quite a few images.
