Together



I took these photographs in May, 2018.  Snowy Egret and Great Egret were sharing one space. They stayed very close.





The male Great Egret.  During the breeding season he develops a green color around his eyes. You can see this color.





Snowy Egret.

  6. They are beautiful. You are perceptive and you have seen the green color of a great heron and you know why it is :)

  11. I guess I would prefer the Great Egret over the Snowy Egret, if for no other reason than the green around his eyes. There are times a touch of subtle coloring means a lot.

    Marvelous photographs, Kaya. It would be a good day for you to be here with your camera. It is snowing and ducks and geese are circling the neighborhood by the score .... fantastic sight, but no fun shoveling ....

  12. Cuatro bellas fotografías para mostrarnos a la garza en todo su esplendor. Es increíble la fuerza que tiene ese ojo amarillo de las garzas.
    Un abrazo,
