BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

GREAT EGRET (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

12 Comments

 

There’s a wetland not far from town that we drive to a few times over the summer.  When we pulled over we saw a solitary Egret fishing.  I wasn’t using my longest lens but the 300mm did a fair job. After a few minutes,  I looked away and when I looked back the bird was in the air. Look at those legs, pulled together like a diver in flight!

  1. Nice capture of the Great Egret with a snack, all fluffed up and happy with himself. I’m always amazed at their precision when they fly–he gets points for having his toes lined up.

  4. Egrets are such graceful and exotic-looking birds. You’ve got photos there that would make me very happy if I had taken them.

  5. We have wetland near our home, and we periodically get a visit from what we believe to be a heron. Have never gotten close enough to make a definitive call, but when it shows up among the ducks and geese, everybody seems to be getting along just fine. I agree with Anne about the first photo – love that one.

  6. Both are lovely portraits of the Great Egret. While appreciating the aerodynamics of the second, I really feel attracted to the first photograph.
