The Great Egret


The Long Necks of the Egrets and the Herons amaze me!


Looks like he's walking towards me

Oh yes... all of the long necked birds are interesting. Mostly though, I love the swans.

Gorgeous photos!

That is a beautiful bird and your cropping has made an interesting series out of one picture ... I'll have to remember that. Sometimes I have only one good picture of a particular bird and I hold it because it doesn't seem like enough. Good job! If you love long neck birds, I have been doing a series on Cranes you might want to go back in my blog and look ... also I will be doing more in the future. Thanks for stopping by ...

I like to bird-watch and I've never seen anything like that!

You're right, the long necks are amazing and I wonder why over the millions of years so many heron species developed such long necks? I must read up.
