Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge

A cold and windy day here in South Florida.  It was rainy and windy this morning so no beach time today.  We took a quick drive out to Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.  January, February, and March are the best months for Bird photography in South Florida.  One of my favorite places is Ding Darling.  I took a chance and drove through the refuge.  The wind seemed to keep most of the birds away from the water’s edge in the refuge, but a few birds were working the trees along the 4+ mile drive through the park.  This Egret was searching for food along the roadway.  We stopped for a few minutes and saw him get a small bite to eat.  I broke out my gear and waited for the right moment.  I watched his behavior  for a little while to see if I could anticipate his habits when he found food.  Patience paid off and a few great captures of an Egret eating his lunch were accomplished.  Enjoy!
