The Bird D'pot


Great White Egret
(3 -3.5 ft tall and wingspan of 4.5 feet)



I rarely see the Great Egret flying toward me so I hustled to get my car window open and grabbed a few shots before he passed over me.  They are beautiful, especially in flight.

  2. I agree, the great egrets are beautiful to watch. We don't have them here in the wild, so I have to wait till I go to Florida for my vacation to see them. You have a great night, hugs, Edna b.
