Great Egrets

Scattered throughout the forest of the refuge, a number of beautiful and graceful Great Egrets stealthily meander about the swampy waters in search of their next unsuspecting meal.

“The trick to not being discovered until it is too late is to become part of the expected surroundings. Stealth is more the art of blending in with the background than sneaking through dark shadows.” ~Raymond E. Feist

  1. You were close up here. Great photos Rebecca. You had the nice reflection as well. I have never seen a Great Egret fan out its feathers like you have in the first photo and also fanning the tail feathers in the second-to-last photo as well.
