Two Snowy Egrets

We saw these two Snowy Egrets out at the marsh. We imagined they were having a conversation. 
They walked along just chatting away. Perhaps it was about our country and the most recent election.
Yes, that must have been it. Because suddenly they simply turned their backs on each other and went their separate ways.

I love when birds tell us a story.

  1. They are nice looking birds, looks like they fell out in the second photo and walked off

  2. So beautiful against the brilliant blue of the water. Yep, there is a right and a left there also.

    1. Arkansas Patti-- I hadn't noticed that right/left split, but yes indeed. They had that too.

  3. Egrets have more sense than to listen to politicians.

  4. I love the reflections in those photos. If only everyone could just peacefully disagree and walk away.

    2. I deactivated it for a bit. I wanted to keep it as a light-hearted and whimsical type blog, but I haven't been feeling that lately. I'll still be reading blogs though. Perhaps I'll pick it up again at some point, but I'm not quite ready to.

    1. Tara-- So glad you like the marsh photos. It is definitely one of our favorite places to go. Yes, the conversation was a bit cathartic but I'm still heartbroken by the outcome.
