  14. 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!

  17. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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

  37. 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.

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