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 go and visit 2Sweetnsaxy at  http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

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.

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

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,

It looks more like a paddy field with many egrets over here.

Beautiful.

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!

Beautiful shots! There is an egret wildlife refuge near our home in FL and I have been meaning to take pics but never get the chance.....Christine

Tricia said...

Oh this IS very nice! There's a wildlife refuge east of here that looks a bit like that.

Absolutely beautiful!

Mumsy said...

These are just gorgeous pictures to see when we're snow in today.

Shellbelle said...

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.

chubskulit said...

wow lots of them!

Spiderdama said...

So many birds! Beautiful:-)

Living In Williamsburg Virginia said...

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

Martha Z said...

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.

It looks like a lovely place for the egretts.

This looks great right now especially when I'm sitting in the middle of our third blizzard this year.

dAwN said...

Wow..look at all of them...I clicked on the photos to view larger...nice shots!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

That is a great photo of all the egrets. I have only ever seen one or two egrets at a time. This is such a cool shot. Thanks for sharing.

Marsha said...

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

KaHolly said...

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

Pam said...

We rarely see egrets in our area. Beautiful shots. I am ready for spring.

Eden said...

Beautiful place. Greats shots. Love the reflection too.

LV said...

Egrets are neat birds and can be very entertaining. You got some really good shots of these.

LDH said...

These are such exciting shots! I have never seen so many together at one time. Thank you, Eileen for sharing!
Kindly, ldh

kim said...

What beautiful photos. Reminds me of many Fla. trips plus my childhood there. Now my Dad lives in Fla. so I still get to enjoy scenes like these.

Candy said...

They are some nice shots and love the yellow mosaic from Monday.
Warm Wednesday Blessings ;-)

Natural Moments said...

Wow, that's quite the egret congregation. It must be fun to watch all of them interact with one another. Its like peering into a unique cultural experience.

Andrea said...

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.

Sherri said...

You are probably going to think I'm wacky but I have never heard of an Egret before! Glad to learn something new today! Beautiful pictures! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week! Sherri@lavenderfields
