Great Egret ( Ardea alba )
We spent the Australia Day long weekend at beautiful Lake Macquarie in the Hunter region north of Sydney NSW Australia. I have wanted a picture of these beautiful birds for a long long time. Our cabin was right on the water (an old boat shed converted) which offered up many opportunities for waterbird photography.
