Friday Creature

The beautiful, wispy snowy egret has always been one of my favorite birds. I don't often see the larger great egret, but I ran into this one a few days ago (I've also made the acquaintance of the even larger great blue heron, who will be appear here at some point).

Have a great weekend! Other creatures await!

Nice! Did you get a longer lens? This one appears to be very close.

It's just the opposite for me. I see Great Egrets regularly, but rarely see Snowies.

I'm still considering the lens, Fletch. For now, I'm just getting in as close as I can and using the highest resolution I have, in case I need to crop it down to find the bird...



How was paradise? Did you come back or just send for your things?



John, lucky you! I love to watch these birds move. They're so elegant!
