I shall always remember seeing my first Little Egret in England, a lone bird which had made its home down near to Southampton. Now they are reasonably common - global warming?Wishing you a Happy Christmas from England.
Another cool shot from your camera! Thanks for all of them over this past year. Looking forward to more. And may you have a cozy holiday.
That's the best kind of snow, Robin Andrea and Roger! Just a lot of rain, drizzle, and fog here on the East Coast. I hope you both have a great holiday.
What a beautiful creature and such an amazing shot. Hope you and roger have a wonderful holiday and a splendid New Year with maybe a new house?
John-- I'm going to have to do a little online sleuthing to see what little egrets are doing in Southampton. Wishing you a very Happy Christmas from the north coast of California.isabelita-- So glad you liked this photo. I loved seeing those snowy feathers. Wishing you and Phil a cozy holiday as well.Scott-- We're having a lot of rain here too, but supposed to be sunny for Christmas. Wishing you a very wonderful holiday as well.Arkansas Patti-- We were so happy that we ventured out into the foggy day to see this beautiful bird. Hope you have a splendid holiday as well, and a grand new year. A house! Now that would be a very wonderful thing.
Beautiful bird. They look so regal in any pose. Thanks for sharing.
goergeous photo Robin A...much appreciated...are you and Roger Santa?
Beautiful!! Absolutely exquisite! She's like a drift of snow with the wind blowing plumes (it's not really a pun, is it?) off her.I wish you both a truly wonderful holiday season.
oh my, looks at that gorgeous wispy whiteness! beautiful.
Beautiful shot of one of my favorite birds; one of the main reasons I travel to California, in fact.
lindaj-- We love seeing them and I can't ever stop myself from taking a photo every time!Steve-- I'm so glad you like this photo. Thank you. And, no, Roger and I are not Santa! CCorax-- I couldn't believe the detail in this photo. I could see little gnats on her stunning whiteness. Her feathers are like drifts of snow with blowing plumes. Happy, happiest of holidays to you too.Tara-- So glad you like this photo. Thank you.Loren-- Thank you so much. You are such an amazing photographer of birds. I am honored that you think this is a beautiful shot. We see the Snowy Egret almost every time we go to the marsh. Always a beautiful sight.
It is a wonderful photograph of such a lovely bird. Right time, right lighting and right picture.
What a great picture! If anyone hasn't clicked to embiggen it, I urge you to do so.
NCmountainwoman-- Glad you liked this photo. I had been videoing a little grebe that was hunting for fish during a very high tide, and this bird just flew right up next to us. It was a lucky moment.Mark-- Thank you so much. So glad you liked this photo. The bird was very patient and didn't notice us at all. It was hunting during the high King Tides here.
Sorry I haven't visited for a bit. Was busy with Santa. I hope you two had a wonderful Christmas and have a fantastic New Year!
Dave-- We always love when you stop by. Wishing you a wonderful new year too!
Fantastic photo Robin! That pretty egret is as white as white can be. Pure white...
