~Beauty in White – the Great Egret~

expert in patience

methodical in action

regal in stature


Great Egret

Finally, had the opportunity to get close enough to capture a few photos of the Great Egret that has been fishing on the banks of the Tchefuncte River here in Fairview Riverside State Park.  On our daily walks, I have seen this Great Egret standing perfectly still, then stealthily moving along the shore like an experienced mime.

However, unlike a mime, the Egret is not entertaining us. Instead with a skill necessary for survival and honed over time, it is hunting with focus and determination.

It gives me great pleasure to observe and photography these beautiful, regal Herons. I wish she would have caught something!

We experienced wave after wave of rain last night and this morning it is still raining. Unlike a Colorado rain, which last for a short period of time, these Louisiana rains last all day, all night and all day……

Take the time to enjoy wildlife and always enjoy the Journey!

  1. We had record rains in Phoenix. It felt more like the Midwest than the desert. I’m not complaining though because I could be sitting in a foot of snow in Colorado 🙂

    1. I guess we should not complaint too much; you are right we could be house bound with piles of snow outside our door. I have to tell you, it is so damp that it feels so much colder than it would feel at home! Tomorrow we are suppose to have Sunshine! I am ready for it. I can’t hardly stand to be house bound.
