PHYLLIS' IMAGE OF THE WEEK

Hello, all. Jim will continue to choose his image of the week on Fridays but I will be adding an image of mine on Thursdays. (We're not in competition but it sure is fun).

This image was taken at the St. Augustine's Alligator Farm. While I was looking at the wildlife, I noticed an egret a fair distance from the alligators. There was an amazing afternoon light shining on his feathers and the log on which he was standing. I took a series of images but this one spoke to me. I was drawn to its simplicity and calm because I was aware of the heightened action of the alligators searching for prey that was going on not too far away.


I hope you enjoy it!!
