Love it too! x
Morning Tex oh they love visiting you. You are a gracious host. Hug B
It's difficult to believe those first two pictures are of the same bird! Talk about ruffling your feathers!
Those birds are amazing; I love to see them by the water's edge.The sound the egrets make always reminds me of a dinosaur!
Great capture with the refection! Nice focus on the first two shot
That Heron certainly looks like the king of those fence posts! Nice shots, I recognise the Great Egret from those I see here in Australia.
This is a gorgeous series. You get the most amazing captures.
Pond is getting crowded. Pretty soon visitors will have to take a number. :-)
I love these GREAT birds!
i echo ms. morris comments; you have great captures.lovely picshave a wonderful weekend, mi amiga
first shot looks like he is totally focused on a fish or frog
Amazing wildlife shots Theresa! Have a wonderful weekend!MersadMersad Donko Photography
Quite a pair! Beautiful shots!
And great they are, the photos I mean. Love those birds, too.
The first tightrope walker Heron .. Very cool photos. a Greeting
Beautiful birds! :-)
Of course seeing these great birds made me go look on the internet to read about them. They are so similar in habit and looks except the Great Egret is slightly smaller and is white. Beautiful shots.These guys are there to tell you to have a Great Weekend.Hugs,JB
Wow, absolute beauties right in your yard!
The first ones look like he's walking a tight rope!
Those are beautiful, impressive birds!
He balances quite well!Nice reflections.
Ha ha I think I need to dig a pond. This is marvelous. Great snaps of great visitors!!
Those are beautiful birds.Have a wonderful weekend.
Beautiful pictures. Love his reflection and the tire in the back ground. Have a lovely weekend.
Great captures, reflections T . . .
I have never seen them perch like that. Too funny.
Amazing birds Tex!!Great captures!Love the reflections in the water!Have a happy weekend!Dimi...
Good shots with their reflections too in the frame.
I am jealous of your world. My place is so normal endless cities and cities.... but nature is so far...
Two lovely visitors in a morning.Say hi to them.
ooohhhh Theresa, these are really exceptional, really!! I LOVE the egret and his perfect reflection. That belongs in a frame for sure!! Gorgeous pond visitors!!ps...I photographed one last Sunday, they are still here in jersey, I will probably share it tomorrow!!
Are all your photos from that pond I often see your dogs and horses wading in? If so, you have amazing guests.
Beautiful! Have a good weekend!
That would be a shot of the lifetime if both birds were on the fence facing each other in a stand-off. Who is going to give first and move out of the way?
Two great ones!
I like this group of large birds shot. Each one looks so good with their distinctive colors.
Gorgeous bird shots! Hope you have a good weekend.
Herons are such pretty and elegant birds!
tres fort cet equilibriste ;o)
Such great reflections.
Wish I had the balance of that Heron.
Handsome birds and awesome reflections ... nice catch, Theresa.Andrea @ From The Sol
Very cool reflections of that egret!
love the white egret!happy weekend~
Some fun herons acrobats, wonderful!
and you call this home!!!! :-)
Hi Theresa, Both big wading birds are beautiful! Both are very agile, too. I like that picture with the reflection of the egret a lot. Have a super good day today and a most pleasant weekend!
Looks like the heron is walking on a 'balance beam'! :) Lovely egret and reflections, too.Lindy
Off we go!!!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Great shots of great birds!~
You really have a gift to take beautiful picture of birds. These ones are so elegants... Beautifuf subject of reflection.
Beautiful birds! I like the bird reflections and the tire reflections.
Such regal birds! I love to watch them hunt.
Tow great shots of these 2 lovely birds and wonderful reflections of the Egret
Love your birds as always and they do make great reflections on the water!! Regal they are indeed!! Have a great weekend!
Oh my goodness what a reflection capture in your last photo! Stunningly beautiful!
Aren't they so beautiful.
Beautiful pictures, Tex!The Great Blue Heron and the Great Egret are gorgeous.Love principally the reflection of the Egret on the pond.
hij heeft daar dan ook een prachtige stek aangeboord.
Lovely birds. We haven't seen all that much of the great blue here, this year. He was around a lot last year and only fleetingly so far, this year. Now I know where he's hanging out. ;)
The great Egret and his reflection, a magnificent regal bird, and super photo with the grasses or reeds in the water below. Cheers,Jean
Beautiful pictures, nature is wonderful! And I loved that with the reflection in the water :D
Imagine if you could get them in the same photo!!
Tire fence. THAT's what you call it :) Love your birds and the reflection shot.
He is lovely and so are the reflections.
They are both so beautiful to see!
T, nice shots! They are both such beautiful birds! It amazes me that a bird the size of a Heron can perch of a rail like that! Just like a tree branch!
I love the first one: the hesitation? :-)
They both are so beautiful!
Very beautiful photos.I wish you a nice weekend.
Do you ever wonder how the white egret can stay such a bright white, after getting wet and being around dirt and mud? I do.
I have to go looking for birds like these to photograph, you have them turn up to order. Have a great weekend.peter
Nice reflections with the egret! They always make a great picture.
I love birds, they are so peaceful.I see you visit a lot of the same blogs I do. So I thought I would come say Hello.Have a great weekend!
Well worth coming over for! Great pics.
They are usually such elegant birds, but the one in the first pic looks a little disheveled. I love the egret reflections!
I love the picture with the reflection. Such a nice effect!
Who needs to go to the Zoo, right?You got a lot of nature's splendor right on your property. Awesome.Have a Beautiful Day and an Awesome Weekend!
You get the best bird pictures. These are birds I rarely see and when I do it is usually flying away from me.Thanks for sharing these.
Oh your pond pictures makes me want a pond. Such wonderful visitors always. Beautiful Heron.Blessings Francine.
Beautiful! Greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)
i was trying to figure out what that was in your shot - i thought maybe a hollowed out piece in a tree. but no it is a tire. that is too funny. ..how our eyes try to figure things out. have a great weekend!! ( :
Very nice !
Tex, they are both Greats.. Wonderful shots of both the heron and egret. Happy weekend!
Must be some tasty fish in that pond:@)
Beautiful.Looks like your water line has risen some.Do you have any fish left??
Wow! That is great...Noodle and crew
Indeed they are great! And not just because they are so large either. Beautiful pictures of two of my favorites.
Great shots- love the heron balancing act!
It's amazing to me the birds you get on your property!! Great pics.
Great indeed! And not just because of their size. Lovely pics of two of my Great favorites!
Awesome! Great shots. :)
Such beautiful photos! I especially love the last one - reflection of egret on water looks very lovely!
Amazing shots. Thanks for sharing.
You capture how beautiful these birds are really well.
Wow...I love these photos! The reflection is beautiful!
Looks like quite a balancing act on the part of the GBH!
Great Egret is lovely. I wish YOU no great regrets, Tex!ALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^= . <3
A great job with these photos! Beautiful reflections of the egret. I think your pond would rival a nature preserve in the number of birds you see. :-)
both are excellent captures and reflections.
Beautiful reflection in that last one. The GBH balancing in the rail is pretty cool too.
Your land is a paradise for birds.
Nice photos. I like the reflection in the last shot.
Great from every angle....:)
Your pond is sure a bird magnet, perfect for a talented photographer like you.
Very cool and nice pictures of the both of them too!
I love it when I see these birds. You got great photos of them.
If I had your pond, I'd just sit and gaze at it all day long. What beauties!
I can’t tell heron from egret, but your color description made me understand, though only in your blog.Yoko
So beautiful they are! You are so lucky who gets their visit :)
Sou very,very beautiful photos.
Four great photos.
Great images. Have a nice week end !
Oh, sure they are 'Two Pond Greats', aren't they :-)Now, almost all the rice harvest is over and I'm wondering where the ones I could see now(^^;) Great reflection too, Theresa♡♡♡Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
Well you know they're always keeping a watchful eye out on your pond:)
These are greats and I love the water reflection.
Always love the reflections....perfect!
Nice pictures Tex, love all the large wading birds, Egrets, herons, etc...! :)
I know looks aren't everything, but I sure do prefer those elegant white herons. ;)
Lovely photos. It's rare to see a blue heron all stretched up. Magnificent birds
Perfect title, you live in such a magical place!
Very similar, but opposites in plumage. Kinda funny to see a heron perched on that fence! Beautiful reflections!
What patience you have to capture these wonderful birds! I enjoyed it!!
A good balancing act going on there in those first 2 shots. Nice reflection in the last one.
You have a lovely variety of visitors to your pond.
Nice that you had been. Two herons there The egret and great blue heron:-)
They are a fun bird to watch.If you haven't noticed.... I am trying to catch up on my blog reading. lol
It doesn't get much better than that. I think I got a photo of the twin to the Great Egret--same pose and all.
