Name: The Littlest Great Egret

Description: This little family scene shows both nature's beauty and its harsh realities. At first, all I saw were the adorable, fuzzy chicks, then the little one, thin and bare, looking up from the bottom of the nest. (The last snowy egret to hatch rarely survives. Born the weakest, it falls victim to competitive siblings and is undernourished, attached, and even pushed from the nest.)
