Egret In the Pond by AuntDot


Available to buy on…

I captured this egret in a pond in front of my opthalmologist’s office in Ocala, Florida. This was taken from the side car window as my husband drove out of the driveway. There were a couple of Muscovy Ducks in the pond as well, but I wasn’t fast enough getting the camera from my purse and we had passed them.

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.
