Wordless Wednesday: Great Egrets Moving North

  1. No words need to be said when it comes to this bird. A gangly fellow, but yet so graceful at the same time. I hope he sticks around long enough so that I can get a glimpse of him. I read that they are hanging out at David Bergy Pond. Is this where you shot these pictures?

  2. Yes Cheryl, there have been a mating pair at the Bergey swamp since Sunday. Last night one was right at the front by the sidewalk and the other was far at the back. There was so much more to see too...

  6. The egret is such a stately and elegant-looking bird. I love the ones with its reflection in the lake. Nice capture!

  8. Those birds make some of the best mirror reflections ever (and you captured them!)

  9. Ruth,
    Wow..nice photos..I just purchased the same camera you have and have been using mostly auto setting..
    Still have allot to learn.
    Did you use a shutter speed priority mode with these shots?
    Or some other manual setting?
    Very cool...

  17. Great photos of the great egret. I found a pair in a swamp north of where I live and took some photos...but none as great as yours with it's wings stretched out in flight.
