STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREAT EGRET

18 Comments

 

EgretIt’s unusual to see an egret perched on a beaver lodge, normally we see them wading in the water or fishing. The bird stood there for quite a while and I managed to get him in several poses, the first of which is shown here. Most summers we see several egrets and herons in this one location, not last year. The lake was very high which must have made for challenging conditions. They likely found some easier spots to fish.

  4. Lovely detail – was this egret far away? I see many and some are perched in branches of trees but too far away for my lens

  6. Very nice shot! It’s so easy to blow out the bright whites on these birds and lose the feather detail, but your Egret is very detailed!
