This was shot Feb. 23, 2015 at the Venice Rookery in Venice, Florida.

The nests all have eggs and this nest has hatchings. The one with the wet hairdo is just hours out of the shell.

The movie was shot with a Canon 5D Mk3, Canon 500 lens, and stacked 2x and1.4 teleconverters. Exposure was manual: F16 @ 1/50th ISO 1000.
