It's spring time and that means nesting season -- building a home one twig at a time. This Great Egret brings in a prize for her tree-top abode where the new ones will get heir first glimpse of the world. The shot is at the Audubon Park rookery -- an island in the bayou of the park just across from Tulane and Loyola Universities in New Orleans. I was amazed to see the cluster of fire power on the shore when I took this shot -- professional nature photographers with lenses up to about 1000mm maybe more. It's a favorite and easy-to-get-to place for nature photography right in the heart of the Big Easy.
