A good photo - in focus despite the 'distracting' grass in front of the bird.

Very nice. Egrets in our/your area are seasonal, and in our area we do not get so many great whites.

Thanks. I appreciate that.

That is what I noticed also. The detail of the Egret is still there to see even though the grass is there. Sort of a variety effect.

Thanks a lot for the nice comment. I appreciate that.

It seems like in the warmer months the Egrets usually are less to be found than the Herons, but this year I have seen like 5 Egrets at a time, and they don't seem to be as shy as they sometimes have been.
