Snowy Egret Having A Bad Hair Day

 

An early morning walk this past week along a berm of rocks, and this unexpectedly popped up before me!

Snowy Egret’s Bad Hair Day

 

As the Snowy Egret managed its wiggly snack, I stepped forward to hopefully get some of those rocks out of the frame.

Oops!  Now the Snowy Egret sees me and quickly stands tall on alert.

 

I quickly looked away and stood still, waited a bit, and then looked back out the corner of my eye.  The egret was still there but had turned the other direction, no longer concerned with me.

There were more important things on its mind…..like washing that tasty snack!

No more photos to share in this series, which means…..no, I did not get the gulp!  Argh!!  😉

  1. These are great snowy egret photos! Their plumage is such fun to capture – it can either look hilarious or beautifully elegant! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great series, Donna. Were you shooting the Nikon D750? You could have used the retractable back screen and make it above the rocks. 🙂

    • Thank you, HJ! Yes I was, and you are so correct, I didn’t even think about that. I was startled, it happened so fast! Thanks for pointing that out, I am going to play/practice with that now. Be prepared next time for this scenario! 🙂

  3. Even without the gulp this was a marvelous series. I very much admire the super clarity you achieve, as always. I particularly love it because my vision is becoming more of a problem. Just one of the reason I seem to struggle to keep up with blogging. I know I’m missing out on some great posts, but I’ve been having to limit how much time I can spend staring at a computer screen. 😢

    • Thank you very much, Gunta, I appreciate each of your visits! I know what you mean about computer screen time, there are days it bothers my eyes. Not liking this part of getting older and wiser!

  4. These are fabulous Donna! The lighting is spectacular! The eyes just glow and the water glistens off the wiggly snack! Thank you for teaching me about being aware of the location of the sun for the best shots! You are a master at this!
