Snowy Egret

The snowy egret is about two feet in length and has a wingspan of about three feet. It has white feathers, a yellow patch of skin around its eyes, a black bill and black legs with bright yellow feet. In breeding season, it has lacy plumes on its head, neck and back. Males and females look alike.

The snowy egret breeds on the Atlantic Coast, the Pacific Coast and the Gulf Coast. It is also found in some inland areas. It winters from California south to South America on the west coast and from Delaware south to the West Indies on the east coast.

The snowy egret can be found in marshes, swamps, shorelines, mudflats and ponds.

Photographed at Assawomen Bay in Fenwick Island Delaware.

Photographed with a Nikon D90 and a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4G ED VR Lens

The simple realization that time lost is lost forever, is one I find utterly frightening.

Great photography is ultimately not about cameras; great photography is about great photographs.

A great photographer is a person who makes great photographs, not necessarily a person who owns a great camera or lens.
