Wednesday was a beautiful day with nice cloud formations and lovely weather. Jane and I saw 6 alligators plus great blue and little blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets and cattle egrets. They are building their nests in the rookery. A few were hanging out at the pond below the spillway. We also stopped on the way down to take some landscape photos on the scenic road to the Refuge. All photos with the 50D and 17 - 55 or 100 - 400. I used a polarizer for most of them. I had fun artistically enhancing some of them!
