Great Egret Take-Off

While in Florida, I had a gorgeous Great Egret land directly in front of me while I was sitting in my golf cart (bird-mobile as my hubby calls it) watching and photographing other birds in the trees.

I guess this Great Egret wanted to be sure I took his photo as well!

I stayed seated in my cart and turned my lens on him as he slowly strutted back and forth in front of me for about two minutes, pretending as if he didn’t see me.

Then just as suddenly, he said, “I’m outta here!”

And then he was gone.  That was one quick photo session!

Now this is interesting, why would he land right in front of me in this bold & bright cart?

Donna’s “Bird-Mobile”

Remember I’ve mentioned I’d been riding around in my golf cart in the campground taking all those photos I’ve been posting.  You’d surely think all those Florida birds wouldn’t come even close to me and all those bright colors on my cart, wouldn’t you?    I’m thinking, like them all, this Great Egret had a thing for Jimmy Buffet.   🙂

Be yourself, be pleasant, play hard and have no regrets.

Enjoy your weekend!  I won’t be able to post again until next week, so I wish those that celebrate, a very Happy Easter.  Be safe on the roads if you’re traveling!
