Great Egret Standing Tall by 

I love the graceful lines of this egret standing tall with its neck extended and its feathers trailing in the water. This bird didn’t seem to mind my getting pretty close. Photo taken at the pond in Seminole Park, Seminole, Florida.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Beautiful capture, Dot. I like the ripples from it’s movement in the water.

  • Yes they are awesome birds. They look like twice the height when they stretch their necks up like this. I followed it around and got pretty close, so I was thrilled.
