BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

SOUTHWARD BOUND

egret-1

This was one of several shots I took in mid October before the Great White Egrets headed south. We’ve seen them yearly at the reserve but never in such great numbers or so close by. In the past they would remain in the middle of the lake and I never managed to capture more than a stark white blur. This year was different and like the Great Blue Heron I featured a few posts back, this egret posed beautifully on a beaver lodge well within my sights. I have a few more shots of this bird wading in the shallows which I’ll be putting up in the next little while.
