Today I stopped by the egret rookery at Seabrook Island. Most of the birds have fledged but there was some interesting action in several of the nests. I was a bit early for the best light, but here are a few of my favorite shots.
And as an aside, last summer my husband and I drove all over Provence looking for a field of sunflowers but we were about a week too late. After Seabrook I drove over to Johns Island and found the sunflower field featured in my new header photo right here on Johns Island. Who knew?!
