Just before crossing Folly Creek onto the Edge of America, there is a little strip of land called Little Oak Island.  Developers of the gated community built marsh-front villas and beautiful water-front homes.  In the center of the island is a rookery that boasts a diverse population of egrets, pelicans, herons, ducks and other birds.  Recently, I dropped in on the birds and found this pair of Ibis and a black crowned night heron.

I usually shoot my Nikon D-5100 with Nikkor 35mm lens, but inspired by UK blogger Mike Hardisty, I tried a few shots with the Nikkor 55-200.  Birds are challenging and Mike has some masterful images.
