A quick stop at the Venice Rookery

After a trip to Sarasota I was returning on US-41 and couldn’t resist a stop at the Venice Rookery.  There is still plenty of nesting activity with Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets and Cormorants and Anhingas strutting their stuff.  I loaned my Nikkor 70-300mm VR to a friend and put my 105mm f2.8 Micro-Nikkor on my camera.  It wasn’t really long enough to cover the nesting activity but, I figured I might find a few dragonflies about.  Unfortunately, it was too windy for that but, I did get some nice shots of roosting birds and turtles as I walked on the back side of the pond.



As usual, just click the image or a larger view.


About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
