The Venice Rookery is an island in a small pond where many birds nest. Last Sunday, there were white egrets, blue herons, and anhinga. There is a resident alligator, but I did not see him that day.
You can probably see why I had camera anxiety. Me, with my Nikon Coolpix set on auto focus--I stayed out of the way of the big boys.
These three guys were having some kind of disagreement, but they managed to work it all out.
