Snowy Egret

Snowy Egret - Flying Away | Click thumbnail for larger view

It was Wednesday morning, and several Snowy Egrets were feeding in the marshy area of our cove, but they were just to far away to get photos. I hoped that they would fly to an area closer to where I was standing, and being low tide, I fully expected this to happen. What I didn’t expect was a flyover of an adult Bald Eagle, causing the Egrets to scatter. All of the Egrets flew away from me, except this one, which flew past where I was standing. It was soon out of sight, but I captured the moment and it became the essential image of the story that I am sharing with you. Enjoy!

Happy birding!
