Great Egret  ~ Beauty and Balance by AuntDot

Great Egret ~ Beauty and Balance by 

One of the beautiful great egrets hanging around at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Homosassa, Florida.

Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D, Canon 55-250 lens at 250 mm

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.
