The White Snow Egret
Merritt Island, FL
A short drive from Cocoa Beach is the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, A beautiful bird sanctuary that is usually quite empty of tourists.
We had been there before in much warmer weather and did not see many birds, but on this day in April the refuge was stunning.
It is difficult to get close to the birds, it is very quiet, few cars in the refuge and the birds leave if they hear you approaching. So this was one of my best shots.
