World Bird Wednesday: A Great Egret or two

Another bird from my trip out to Lake Wivenhoe. This Great Egret with non breeding facial colour - yellow bill and facial skin. This one wasn't keen on allowing me very close even with my "stalker lens"


OK... too close. I'm out of here!


Yep... I think this is far enough away from stalker lady...

As I was photographing the developing colours of the sunset I saw another Great Egret

Sporting breeding colours - bill mostly black and facial colours green

This one wasn't too sure about stalker lady either!

Stalker lady got a nice set of shots though!
I like the shot with the green grass and water - lovely composition.

stalker ladies?? Is that what we are? yea, maybe. :)

Think that stalking thing payed off so it was worth it. Great shots :)

I love egrets. They are graceful stalkers with a precision strike. Fun to watch, but difficult to capture for sure! You got some great pics ;)

A beautiful bird to see... love the flight shots.

These kinds of water birds are all over the place here in the region where we live. We are lucky to see such beauty.

Greetings,

Have been told that if you get down on your stomach and move slowly towards birds, they don't tend to get so wary of you. I've yet to try it as I might never be able to get back up again. :)
Great captures.

Classics!

I never get tired of Egret shots, even thought there are thousands of them here. If you Google, Lake Martin (Louisiana) you will see the beautiful birds and swamp where I live. I ever get tired of shooting photos there.

Great shots!

Beautiful shots of the Egret Liz. I especially like the sunset lit birds.

Hi there - I actually think I like the one showing the egret and the sun set the best - even if the bird is small in the picture. It has great atmosphere.

Hello! Nice photos of the bird. have a nice day !

Ross said...

Hey Liz! Great shots! Looks like on one of the shots you had a hard choice to make, the Egret or the sunset. Or better yet you got them both! Fantastic! Sorry I've been out of touch for a bit but I've been really busy trying to set up my business amongst daily life with the kids. Oh! Ya! Mix in my disability and things have been one big blur!!

Lovely! It's quite OK that your "stalked" bird flew away since you got such wonderful flight shots!

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Beautiful photos.

Regards and best wishes

Nope, those birds don't appreciate being stalked -- but you did a fabulous job. Love the photo with the green grass in background. :)
