Great White Egret And The Wind

 

It was a windy day, a few months ago (probably March – even in South Florida, we get lots of wind during that month), and I caught up with that elegant bird via camera.

Normally, when the egret is standing still or walking slowly in his relaxed gait, you cannot see the exquisite special feathers lurking among the others.  The breeze moves them and we are given some eye candy:  hidden feathers caught up by that stirred wind.

The breeze was getting stronger, and you can easily see the forward movement of the littoral grasses.

  1. I love birdies of all kinds. I have a couple of finches. But in the wild I adore watching the Great River Herons and the Egrets down on our local river. They are positively fun to watch … especially the Herons when they are teaching their young to fish … Yes, I love birds of all feather.
