Wow! I've never seen so many egrets together in one place! And their reflections make it look like that many more are there! What a great capture!

I love to see these long-legged critters. They are handsome.

eileeninmd said...

rainfield, I love all the birds, but some like the egrets and herons are a little more special.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful -- I enlarged each one and just gazed. Its not like these birds are new to me -- we see them often on both Coasts -- but your pictures are just amazing -- capturing their very stillness. So peaceful -- and perfect for the Reflections meme!

beautiful birds and reflections.

Carol said...

Have always liked egrets and herons. Your shots are great with such clear reflections.

Dancin' Fool said...

Wonderful shots and two of my favourite birds also. I always think Herons defy gravity, and they nest in trees!!

I love your Iris shot for your blog header.

Happy weekend to you.

My Weekend Reflection

Elaine said...

Beautiful reflection shots! That looks like a wonderful place to visit, very serene and peaceful.

Phil said...

Wow Eileen, So amy egrets in one pool, I am so jealous. Nicely catured shots

eden said...

Wow, gorgeous shots and the reflections are fantastic. What a beautiful place.! I can spend the whole day there watching the egret and herons.

KaHolly said...

Wow! So many in one place. I'd be in heaven. Sometimes the Great Blues up here will congregate in one spot, but it's usually in a much larger area so they are well dispersed. ~karen

I loved seeing your egrets and herons. We have smaller, bluish toned ones here and I always find it a treat to spot one waiting patiently on the marsh or flighing overhead, toes pointed daintily behind.

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog earlier. It's a pleasure to meet you.

James said...

Wow! I love seeing herons and I've never seen so many at once. These are really neat.

Spiderdama said...

Wonderful birds! And lovely reflection.
Wish you a great week!

Ann said...

Where I lived in Singapore, there were flocks of egrets. Some people say they came from South Africa. A very long way to fly.

SquirrelQueen said...

Gorgeous shots Eileen, you captured the reflections perfectly. I really like the last one with an almost perfect reflection.

Eden said...

Hi, Eileen!

Great reflection shots. I love all beautiful pictures.

Have a great week!

Great photos. The herons that live around us are very shy and never sit still for a photo.
