An Egret

This week I am linking up with Michelle's Nature Notes, Anni's Bird D'Pot and Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday.

I haven't taken any bird photos lately but as we were leaving Norfolk Botanical Garden several weeks ago, we saw a pretty Egret on the edge of the water.

Egrets are my favorite bird...so stately, so patient. And we see them in Oregon and in Florida.

My post tomorrow is about having NO egrets. . . . . cue the Twilight Zone music :)
