Snowy Egret

In Islamorada, at mile marker 81.5 bay side is Islamorada Fish Company (IFC), a purveyor of fresh seafood.  IFC also supplies the fish and seafood delicacies for the Islamorada Fish Company restaurant and the Zane Grey Lounge on the second floor veranda overlooking Florida Bay. All three are part of the World Wide Sportsman complex in Islamorada. During a brief walk behind the fish market I spotted a Snowy Egret. The egret was quite comfortable posing, allowing me to get a little closer after each shot. At one point another photographer got too close and spooked the bird and the egret changed positions, but didn’t fly off to the backcountry. I continued shooting for a few minutes and ended up with the images seen below.
