Walking along the beach, watching the birds, is such a delightful experience. Just like all animals, each bird has their own unique personality. It is fun to try and capture their personality with my camera.

The Snowy Egrets sure do know how to express their personalities. With their bright yellow feet, expressive eyes and showy plumage they are dressed for the stage and they never seem to let us down with their dramatic performances.

All you have to do, to enjoy the performance, is grab a front row seat!
