some neck! ;)

Robin Lamb said...

T, great series! What a wonderful bird!

Debbie said...

These are really awesome t, really crisp and clear!! They are good fisherman, I enjoyed the blow by blow!!

Kathy said...

Great shots. My experience with these birds is they're not willing to let you get too close and just as I feel I'm ready for the perfect shot, off they go! Love that one with the ruffled feathers!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I'd hate to get in-between that beak and dinner. Yikes!

Willow said...

Funny how such a big beak can be so specific handling such a little fish . Great series !

Susan said...

Gorgeous. I love the bottlebrush imitation and his pre-dinner snack :D)

Paula said...

Like that bottle brush imitation. I'm seeing an Egret at the stock tank at times. Hope it takes up residence since I miss the one I found dead.

Sketchbook Wandering said...

Fantastic color, fantastic neck, fantastic fantastic photos!!!!!!!!

Margie said...

Loved the bottle brush comment, LOL! His stark white against the backdrop is so pretty.

Linda said...

Lovely bird! Great set of pictures.

Life happens said...

Please tell me you have to go looking for all these animals you take shots of??? Surely you are not so lucky as to just walk out and see this. If so I am jealous. :) Happy Mothers day!

Anvilcloud said...

Something ate, something died. Ah well. Pretty bird, so I cheer for the egret. :)

Munir said...

We were visiting our son in Hawaii this past week. Every time I saw a bird or flocks of Birds I would think about your blog posts.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I thought of you yesterday when I also saw an Egret. Unfortunately I couldn't stop and get amazing photos like yours, they really are fun to see, aren't they?

Michelle said...

KB Bear said...

Awesome photos of the egret. "Down the hatch"! Your pond is such fun!

Stephanie Faris said...

Great shots. Amazing that you're able to get so close without scaring it off. Although you may be using a really good zoom lens? Either way, looks awesome!

Deb said...

love the bottle brush photo....great photos...

Stephen Hayes said...

There's something exhilarating about the sight of these wonderful white birds.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Wow, her neck is long! It really shows up when she stretches it out. Like the bottle brush analogy. :-)

orchid Miyako said...

Wow! wonderful Egret show♡♡♡ Bottle brush imitation shot is REALLY amazing♪♪♪
I happened to take a not-well picture of egret with tractor the other day.... I'm thinking if it is worth a post, haha. Great series, dear Theresa;

What an astonishing series of photos, particularly the one where it has extended its neck. I know very little about birds - how big are these things?

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

The Egret are just coming back to our area. Great captures!
