STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREAT EGRET (FOUR PHOTOGRAPHS)

egret-1

We have seen several Great Egrets over the past few weeks at the reserve we visit. When I came upon this individual it was perched on top of a beaver lodge, around 50 feet from where I stood along with some other photographers. I’m sure it saw us but didn’t seem to mind. It turned and stretched and preened for quite a while then hopped off the lodge and waded in the water. Although there are a few Egrets at the lake, I think I’ve been photographing the same bird each time I visit as it’s always in the same general area. This is the first in a series of Great Egret posts that will appear on my blog.

  14. You’re the third person I know (myself included) to show a great white egret recently. The other person was about 150 miles away near Houston, but you’re all the way up in Ontario. This is a far-flung heron.
