I’ve been featuring a lot of birds as of late and just wanted to assure all my readers out there that … you are in store for a lot more of them. Just being honest, my backlog of bird shots is so large now it is going to buckle the floor in my den. So, if you happen to like bird posts, you are going to be extremely happy over the next couple of months. Now, on the other hand, if you happen to consider bird posts as simply pointless filler between my liberal rants or book reviews… well, my absolute apologies. There is a reason I am trying to get through the bird posts as fast as possible – no, I am not going to reveal why until I get further along with that project. I’ll try to sprinkle some non bird posts in whenever I can, but for now, check out one of the Greats
Obviously the Great Egret is not a new bird on my list – it appeared on Life Intrigued way back in 2011 (link here). The best thing about the hobby of bird photography is even though you have a bird on your list already … you can always try to improve your shots. Maybe you can get it in a new setting, displaying some new behavior or maybe just improve on the technicals of taking a photograph. With the exception of those damn Coots, I’ll still take shots of whatever I see that has feathers. Just so happens that the Great’s are a lot easier to see (ha).
Hit the jump to see a couple more pictures of this long necked member of the Egret family.
