Photo Of The Day By David Connel

Photo By David Connel

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Dearly Beloved” by David Connel. Location: Florida.

“I spent a few days photographing at a central Florida bird rookery,” says Connel. “I’d train my camera on any nest that had interesting bird behavior. When these great egrets intertwined their necks, I knew I had a special pair-bonding image. The egret in the background gave it a comical look as if presiding over a wedding ceremony.”

Exposure: 1/1250 sec., f/5, ISO 500, 280mm.
