I love the first reflection shots Steve but the others are amusing with its feathers being blown like that. Almost like a bad hairday. :)

Superb Steve,
I love the feather in the wind shot, quite cute and it shows up the feather pattern of this nice bird! Well done, these are beautiful pictures.

That's the problem with having long beautiful feathers! It looks quite annoyed in the last two shots - probably hoping you're not photographing it! :)

A lovely collection of images of the Egret. It stands out against the background and the reflections in the water. Nice one.

fantastic shots! You must really put a lot of time in to get such beautiful pictures. I hope you use really good bug spray!
It's worth it though. Your photographs are beautiful.

Talk about a bad hair, or make that feather, day! I've tried to get up close to an Egret several times with no luck. Good for you Steve.

Nice hairdo! . Beautiful pics.

Plumes look great on the bird - better than on some hat - glad that vanity is at an end and these birds can continue to delight us in the wild

What a pretty bird and he looks so funny with his feathers all ruffled like that. Great shots!!

These are beautiful photographs, Steve. I really like to see the feathers in the wind. I was able to get some similar photos when the hawks were around.

It has been a few months since anyone has seen them. I think February.

Steve, I am sitting here with my jaw to the floor over the beauty of these photos. The 2nd and 3rd are incredible!! Such a gorgeous bird,

Cindy said...

As always great shots and unique too!

So very, very poetic. Thanks.

Goodness whar a spectacular bird even on a blustery bad hair day! Although Snowy Egret fits the bill, he courd as easily be called Showy Egret. Great captures.

Roy said...

Great images Steve, the wind helped spice it up a bit.

Kristi said...

What a beautiful bird! Lovely reflection

How gorgeous! Love the ones where the feathers are blowing in the wind!

Mary said...
