New Smyrna Beach surfer/lensman Kem McNair captures scene setter with egret

New Smyrna Beach surfer Kem McNair / Headline SurferNEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- Kem McNair's picture taking skills are only exceeded by his surfing abilities here in the seaside community known for its charm, ecclectic botiques and bars on Flagler Avenue.

And thank to the scenic wonders of the ocean and intracoastal waterway, New Smyrna Beach is a nature lover's paradise with diverse wildlife as demonstrated by McNair's  snapshot here of an egret in a marshy area near his home.
