STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREAT EGRET (THREE PHOTOGRAPHS)

We had a number of egrets at the lake this summer and they remained well into October. When they first arrived they stayed just out of lens’ reach, in the middle of the lake. As the weeks moved on they came in closer to shore. An earlier post of mine has one perched on a beaver lodge within easy range. The egret in today’s post was fishing quite close by and when he caught a sushi-sized fish, I wondered if he was going to toss it back and look for something larger.egret2

  1. Beautiful photos! I think all your Egrets came to my neighborhood for the winter. All of a sudden there has been a big rise in the population. I’ve been meaning to take some photos because I’ve never seen so many like this. They are so pretty.

  4. With my first glance at your first photo, I though the egret was standing on a hippo! Really nice detail in the feathers–must love underexposure at times like this.
