This little egret was posing on the tram cars at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. No tram tour that particular day. Image cropped a bit and resized for upload.

Sharp eye (and the bird's too) and nicely held whites.

Thank you! The eye is amazingly sharp in the original, it held up in the resize for posting.

Thank you! It took a little patience and a few shutter-snaps but finally, this pose!

Some of the egrets at this garden (Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden) are fairly tame, not particularly shy of people. One of them (I don't think this one) is actually rather notorious for following visitors around the garden, joining small groups and keeping them company as they walk through the paths.

The title fits so well with the bird's expression. Gave me a giggle with my morning cuppa. TFS.

Welcome. It (she, Tess, can you tell the difference? I confess I cannot) was pacing on the tram cars, as if waiting for people to board.

Definitely a smile-maker!
