Beautiful white Egret!

Rose said...

Such a handsome bird...I am always amazed how white they are. Can you imagine trying to wear white all the time? Mine would not stay white for very long.

I thought a perch was a fish ... but the egret would have eaten it anyway.

Critters just don't know how beautiful they are, do they ...

SweetMarie said...

thank you again, sweet lady!

Sandra said...

King of the tallest stump I have ever seen

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I like how you pulled back a little with each shot, slowly revealing the size of that stump/perch.

RedPat said...

He picked a marvelous old stump that was high with a great viewpoint. A clever bird I suspect.

These birds seem to think that if they sit perfectly still they will not be seen.

NatureFootstep said...

it´s looking into the forest. I wonder what it sees. :)

Lynn said...

Stands out nicely among all that green:@)

Paula said...

The one we see at the stock tank always perches on a tall dead tree too. Think its getting about dry enough to drive around.

I'm here in Hootin' Anni's admin, but wanted to thank you for sharing your link this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

Great to see this beautiful egret on top of such a large tree stump! Very nicely photographed :-)

Pantherka said...

Heron is very beautiful.

Hannah said...

Beautiful egret shots. When I was a child, I was thrilled my distant views of their pristine white image, so mystical and unreachable. It's cool you can focus in and see the feathers that float off from their backs.

Lowcarb team member said...

A very good perch ... and great pictures, thank you.

All the best Jan

Karen S. said...

Wow, what a cool capture. How fun!

Uppal said...

Lonesome but handsome!
