Participant 2020


I was at the Gatorland rookery when I noticed a mid-sized alligator stalking this Great Egret. The gator would stalk for a few minutes, and then the egret would nonchalantly wander away just as the danger got a bit too close. This went on for an hour. 

Camera Specifications

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 200mm – 500mm F5.6 lens – very slight color touch-up and cropping out-of-camera.

“I managed to catch the egret taking a stab at breakfast in the midst of all of it, and the reflection was just perfect. He missed his breakfast.”
