We used to see one now we see three of them. They're multiplying. It would be fun seeing baby egrets swimming around your pond.
Have a great weekend.

That's what I like...reflections
We get lots of Blue Herons, but very few white Egrets.

We often screw up in New Jersey, but we have no Egrets.

We have the Egret migrate through here every Summer. Gorgeous. I really am intrigued by the Cattle Egret. I have only seen them over by your area\, though.

Crafty Green Poet said...

nicely lined up and lovely reflections too

Bob Bushell said...

I make it out there's 6 Egrets on your pond.

Giga said...

Not three, but six. :)

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

The water wasn't quite still enough to flip the picture. A slight breeze?

LV said...

No doubt you are surrounded by a bird paradise. Anther great reflection capture.

Breathtaking said...

Beautiful shots of the Egrets, and such lovely reflections. I really like the way the Whistlers seem to get on well with all kinds of visiters to the pond.

Quite the trick to catch all three AND their reflections. Beautiful, TexWis. Coming back to catch up!

Gorgeous and perfect, like a well-crafted poem. I must confess, however, to having this musical refrain running through my head now:

"Oh egrets... I've had a few..."
