Snowy Egret

A little Snowy Egret hiding in the trees of the St. Augustine Alligator Farm this past weekend. This was shot with my Canon 1DX Mark ii with the Canon 100-400mm lens! Love that set up, especially for birding!

Little St. Augustine Chapel

Happy Sunday! I was recently in St. Augustine this past week for a photography birding fest and got to shoot at varies locations in the area. However, this little chapel was my most favorite place I visited. It is called the Our Lady of La Leche at the Mission. This little chapel was first built in 1677 and it was reconstructed twice, but most recently in 1910 after a hurricane came through that area. The chapel is over a 100 years old! It is a little chapel dedicated to praying. Little benches roll across the floor of the small chapel and you can light a candle. There is a statue of Mary and baby Jesus on display at the back of the chapel that glows under the lights. It is a wonderful peaceful place for prayer that is filled with the Holy Spirit. 

Baby Spoonbills!

It’s that time of year! Babies are beginning to hatch, especially at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm! Above are baby Spoonbills, probably a few days old. They are so cute! Can’t wait to see them this weekend!
