    Beautiful shot Carol! Love the clouds in the background, very dramatic. And the focus on the egret is perfect. Very well done. Sorry………I have to disagree with Marvin in that I think it is not a Cattle Egret, but a Snowy Egret. Snowy egrets have a black bill with orange lores (the area right above where the bill attaches). The cattle egret has an orange bill with white lores. In any case, great image,

  • Thanks Lolabud… Thanks for the wonderful comment and information on the Egrets… I love them, but really don’t know the proper names… Always a pleasure to hear from you.

    I have to agree with Lolabud. On second view this is a Smowy Egret, not a Cattle Egret,

  • Hi Marvin… I am glad you and Lola are around as I really don’t know the proper names of the Egrets..
