A little altitude envy?

Doesn't it look like this egret is admiring how tall the tree is?

They always look like they are thinking deep, deep thoughts.

Maybe he is trying to mind meld with the tree? :-)

I think he's checking out the shadow of the tree...you know possible competition when the right one comes along!...:)JP

Great shot!

I never can get an egret shot! When I spot them as I'm speeding down the highway, I can't stop. and when I spot them standing near the creek on our property, they spot me and flap away.

Haha...You always want what you cannot have:)

AJ said...

I think he does...great shot!

Hee! I suppose he does rather envy that tree -- he's making a good go at making up some of the height difference though. :)

Millie said...

So funny! Yes it does.

You get the greates bird shots...and this one is one of the best of one that is hard to capture. I'm envious! Good Shot!

Maybe he's checking if the tree didn't steal his fish???

Thanks!

With a neck twice as long as your body,you could be forgiven for thinking you are as tall as a tree!!
