We have a few blue herons who visit the pond regularly. The white egret is a once or twice a year visitor.

My absolute favorite bird :)

It's a marvel to me how the egret stands so still, and the fish swim by so unwary. o.O Have a wonderful weekend!

William Kendall said...

Indrani said...

Very well taken with the reflection in frame.

Linda Kay said...

That is a perfect shot with all the wood, the bird and the reflection.

joeh said...

Beautiful bird.

rainfield61 said...

The harvest must be not good for all the time.

That's why it has a long neck.

A long neck to keep searching.

A fine great Egret shot. I especially like the darker pile of limbs which make the Egret stand out so well.

They visit the pond out my window and are so graceful in flight either in landing or taking off. Always a pleasure to watch.

Do you stack this pond once a week? These guys eat a lot.

Marleen said...

It is such an eyecatching bird!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Another beauty!

Phil Slade said...

I often wonder why birds became pure white when it must increase the likelihood they might be predated? I need to Google.

Bob Bushell said...

Fishing alone, great.

karmnik54 said...

Great shadow shot, T. :)

Love the reflections, nice picture indeed.

Paul said...

It's a wonder an Egret can stay bright white at all, standing in knee deep water on the side of a muddy pond all day... If it was me I'd be a mucky mess!

Lynne said...

Nice shot . . . VERY . . .

Rita said...

So elegant. I always wonder how they stay so clean. :)

So beautiful. I love these graceful looking birds and that's a great reflection shot.

Helma said...

The great egret is as a very nice hideaway to catch fish:-)

James said...

That's a neat looking bird and a neat reflection too!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Wonderful! I saw an egret today as I was driving. I managed to pull alongside it without spooking it, but I took too long to get my camera out.

Leslie said...

Here is a weird thing. Today on a walk I saw 8 of these all together at a pond (a bigger one than the one near my home). Struck me as odd behavior. Very cool sight though as there were also about a dozen cormorants, ducks and a heron. Crazy....but you know how I loved it.

michaelswoodcraft said...

Love the Egrets, great shot! You have amazing wildlife all around you!

Merry Christmas to you Tex and your family!
