Yes, I thought they were an unusual sight. I guess you can see in the map, but since you grew up in the area, we saw them while kayaking at Oleta State Park.

I’m no expert and have no idea if there are some escaped little egrets or something here in FL ( god knows we have everything else). But I would say those are 2 Snowy Egrets. I think I see the yellow-green stripes up the back of the legs on the taller one. The larger size may just be due to it being more stretched out and /or with feathers more fluffed up.

LOL. I just noticed the little moth (i think) on the flower, after posting the picture.

Thank you, I also inquired in another group. there seems to be a consensus that it is some type Crabronidae. Based on that I did some more serching and have a tentative ID.

Different species go by the name of Giant A. so the rangers were right as far as common name.

I just saw these for the first time in the renovated grass/parking lot of the "dog beach" just before the Miami Seaquarium (see ID suggestion), and they look much more like the one in the picture.
