Preening while balancing atop a chain link fence, this beautiful Great Egret was captured at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Homosassa, Florida. (Not a resident bird…many wild birds fly in, probably because they feel protected from predators and near sources of food.)
A special thank you to Judy Wanamaker for meeting me at the park, showing me around, and putting up with my “kid in a candy store” dilly-dallying at each enclosure. It was a wonderful morning!
