Great White Egret

Great egret is a familiar sight in wetland habitats across most of the U.S. but it is relatively rare in Canada. It is nearly as tall as the Great blue Heron but much lighter and more delicate.

in high breeding condition, adults sport vivid grass green loral skin and long nuptial plumes on their backs.

  • A group of egrets has many collective nouns, including a “congregation”, “heronry”, “RSVP”, “skewer”, and “wedge” of egrets.

VOICE Similar to the Great Blue Heron but uninflected, lower and less resonent; Breeding bird gives ducklike gabbling

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
