Pure white elegance nicely describes the Great Egret.

It boggles the mind to see our white birds, including the Great Egret, most always looking clean and pure.Β  How lucky for us!

Great Egret – “Focused”

 

This next 3-photo series is a Great Egret tucked in/under mangrove trees, who had snagged a small snack.

With the tight quarters, the Great Egret still easily gave the fish a slight flip to toss it down the hatch without hardly moving its head.Β  Great reflex and precision!

  1. Aren’t these guys the coolest, cleanest and most elegant of them all waders? Great shots. Donna. πŸ™‚

  2. Amazing birds. We get them here, but usually in grey tones. We live within an hour of coast and bays so we see smaller white varieties, and occasionally larger ones nearer the salt water. In Spring, there is a small island, near the bay, that is covered in all kinds of egrets nesting.

  3. Looks like you might have been in some tight quarters as well! What great catches you’re having, too! It never ceases to amaze me how pure white these birds manage to stay. Can’t help but wonder what their secret is. We might be rich if we could package it.! πŸ˜€
