Rough from the Start
Description: D90 Sigma 50-500@500mm F6.3 SS1/2000 ISO800
w/Mono Pod

Taken at the height of the breeding season. The majority of the Gr. Whites nesting around the Gatorland Main Lagoon start w/3 eggs. Not very many see all 3 fledge. The Runt usually gets shut out and starves or is killed outright by its sibling
Sometimes the strongest chick w/simply force the weaker chick(s) out of the nest & they become Gator snacks.
A week after this was taken this nest was down to just ONE BIG STRONG CHICK !!!!
