This portrait was taken at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It is a private zoo that was referred to me by Scott Bourne. I like his blog PhotoFocus. The tip was much appreciated and I came away with a whole lot of keepers. This Snowy Egret was preening himself. You can see some of the down stuck on his bill.
