Bird Photography Weekly #9

This week my contribution is a pair of shots of the largest of our indigenous species of egrets, the Great Egret (also known as the American Egret or the Common Egret).

Nice shots of an interesting bird. We have a great egret out here in Australia which looks very similar to your photos.

Great shots! I love the reflection in the top one. Our Egrets are long gone, but I did see some when I was at Brigantine a few days ago (hello, it over 2 hours south of me though.)

Great capture with the reflection as well. A lovely bird.

Thanks all. These shots were both taken last month, shortly after Hurricane Ike blew through. I'm still seeing a few egrets flying over these days, but haven't seen any on the ground here in at least a couple of weeks now.

Really nice shots. I wish I saw more of these more often. I think they make for excellent subjects. They're so graceful looking.
