A few weeks back I posted some pictures of a Cattle Egret that were a bit distant and not great. I'm able to post some better ones now, after a chance encounter while sat in hide. This one flew in and took up residence on an island. Typically it's on the wrong side, so you can't see it's legs and feet, but it posed nicely and stayed a long time. I'm much happier with these pictures.
Cattle egrets were the first egrets I saw when I moved to Miami decades ago. Lovely photos today!ReplyDelete
The legs, however, are greatly missed over here.ReplyDelete
Hello, pretty capture of the Cattle Egret. Enjoy your day and have a great new week!ReplyDelete
I predict that Cattle Egret is about to conquer Britain following hard on the footsteps of Little Egret and Great Egret before it.ReplyDelete
Absolutely stunning your photos. The Cattle Egret is a beauty.ReplyDelete

Beautiful series of photos of the Cattle Egret.ReplyDelete
Best regards, Irma
Good shots though. I like their chin whiskers. We don't have Egrets on the west side of the Cascade Mountains that I know of but on the east side there are Great Egrets and Snowy Egret. The Great has a yellow beak and the Snowy a black beak. InterestingReplyDelete
Wonderful captures of the Cattle Egret.ReplyDelete

I love to see Cattle Egrets! And you DID get some great photos! We have them here but they are usually in flocks and sometimes hard to get one alone. Enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
Hello. Cattle Egret looks so beautiful. Wonderful photos. I just wonder what the egrets are wondering when they are standing still for so long...ReplyDelete
Great photos of beautiful Cattle Egret!ReplyDelete
I have seen only a few here. Not close enough to get good photos.
Have a blessed day!
Beautiful photos! I've never had the opportunity to photograph egrets.ReplyDelete
And no cattle to be seen. :) .....I have never seen an egret in person, so I enjoyed seeing your photos Adam...MichelleReplyDelete
