What beauty captured in these images, the last one, wow I bet my husby could do a watercolour that would not even match up to that beauty~

HI Dave It may have been gloomy but these are great shots of the Egret to brighten up a day.

Lovely! We used to live on a road called Egret Court but it didn't have any egrets that we saw, only great blue herons. Of course, they are magnificent too.

That would have caused a bit of twitch the last time I lived anywhere near Leighton Moss.

Hope to be able to pay a visit in July - where I will (as ever) dip out on the Bearded Tits!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Egrets are so showy. They make for good photos.

I can remember when Little Egrets in Lancashire were scarce enough to twitch. I even went to Freckleton in the mid 80's just to see one........

Beauty shots Dave! I love the way you captured the detail of the "fluff" of feathers on it's back, and the reflections are terrific.

All puffed up to stay warm -- the egret casts a beautiful reflection!

Carletta said...

Wonderful captures! Can't help but think those fluffy brilliant white feathers look like a fine mink coat. :)
The second reflection is my favorite.
Have a great week Dave!

Great photos of the Little Egret. I like the way it is all fluffed up against the cold - and showing its beautiful plumes.
I like your header photo - it looks like a fascinating environment out there and must look very different with the tide all in.

These are really beautiful, Dave. I love that you captured him all fluffed up.
