Great Egret

Beautiful wingspan on this Great Egret at West Davis Pond this morning.  There were some little fish (I think...some little underwater creature) bubbling out of the pond today, and all the waterbirds were so busy hunting them that they didn't notice me at all.  Nice!  This one only flew about 20 feet from one feeding spot to another, and right in front of me the whole time.

Wow, you have captured a marvelous sight! One of these flew over my car one day and then turned around toward me. I was so afraid I would hurt him. His legs hung down so low. What a wing span.

Great eye yet again!
