A Gathering of Egrets and Herons on the Lookout

Visiting the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge at low tide, one can be lucky enough to witness a "feeding frenzy" in which numerous birds are fishing in the shallows. This photograph capitalized on a brief quiet moment in which the birds perched in the mangroves, waiting for the next round of fish to swim by. The quiet lasted a few brief seconds.
