A Foggy Morning at the Venice Rookery

My camera club had a field trip to the Venice Rookery  this morning.  It was set up primarily to have a learning session for the many folks using the Canon Powershot SX40, 50 and 60 bridge cameras.  I’ve seen some impressive result with them but prefer sticking with Nikon for a common user interface.

 

I went along just to be sociable and because I hadn’t been to the rookery for a while.  It turned out to be a foggy morning when I arrived at about 8:00 AM and it was just beginning to clear when I left at about 10.   Still, I took a few shots to capture the mood.

I was disappointed to find that the island had suffered some damage.  As you can see from the first shot some of the larger trees have been damaged.  It is still mostly Brazilian Pepper and there are still plenty of places to nest.

The last image shows a young Great Blue Heron on the right getting fed by an adult.
