I am ecstatic to say the least ! I was out for a drive with my camera and stumbled literally onto a Great Egret! I have been waiting for spring to show it’s self and stay for quite some time now. The last to days have been amazing with warm winds and sunshine! Makes me want to head on out and take photo’s and that is just what I did today. I seem to be in nature mode lately which is great from a photo collecting perspective just not a financial one ! LOL So my drive led me to stumble on what at the time I was not so sure was an Egret. I came home immediately downloaded the photo’s and began to scan the bird for indicating parts that would prove to me that it was in fact an egret but I needed to be more specific as to what type as there is many. Sure enough the Neon green marking on it’s face gave it away ! It is indeed a Great Egret in mating season. Mating season brings on all the beautiful plumage as well as the green face. the legs and feet were also black which just firmed up my result. so here it is ! THE GREAT EGRET !
