Egret pond for Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday

From my archives for Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday are shot of Egrets at the wildlife refuge. During the summer months it is cool to see so many Egrets in one place. They are beautiful birds.


I like this shot for the reflections of the trees and the egrets.

To see more Outdoor photos go and visit Susan at Outdoor Wednesday

Thanks to 2Sweetnsaxy and Susan and thanks for stopping by to see my Watery Wednesday.

  1. It's rare to see Egrets in their environment. Over here we only get two of three of them.

  5. I see egrets often in the wildlife refuge near my home ... but NEVER this many all at once. Lovely views ;-)

    Hmmm ... I've shared Outdoor Wednesday at Happily Retired Gal but haven't thought about Watery Wednesday yet ... guess I need to get busy with that, or not. LOL
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. Beautiful photos indeed. I like and respect very much the sensibility in your country for preserving the nature and wildlife. We have similar refuges and parcs in my country too but very few compared to the USA.

    Have a beautiful new day, ciao!

  27. Egrets are one of my favorite birds to photograph, but the only time I've seen this many together is in the evening when they roost together in the trees. This is a wonderful photo, so nice to see them hanging out together.

  28. Very nice! We have Egrets here in coastal Virginia, but we have not been lucky enough yet to capture such a pic.

    ReplyDelete
  29. We have many egrets here but only see one or two at a time. Actually, that's not quite right, during breeding season many can be seen in the rookery tree.

  30. It looks like a lovely place for the egretts.

  37. How wonderful to see all those egrets in one place. I always think they are such elegant looking birds for their size.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, my goodness! Look at all those egrets! Wow! When I was in San Antonio this past December, I saw lots of Great Egrets, but not all congregated in one place. Just amazing. You were so lucky. Nice shot! ~karen

  46. Hi i am new here. Those are great photos of egrets, now reminding me to study harder the new DSLR which i find difficult to use after years of having only the PnS. You might want to see some photos in the tropics too. Happy Valentine's Day and thank you.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
