Great Egret

Ardea alba


Horicon Marsh, in Horicon, Wisconsin, is probably my favorite place to bird and photograph. I personally go up, from Milwaukee, to see the Great Egrets, which stay for the summer then migrate for the winter. This particular Egret was one of 6 left on the marsh and was busy, perhaps, reflecting on the wonderful summer he had... or maybe... the long flight ahead.

Thank you, Argy... right time, right place. I love these birds.

Fabulous Matthew. These are the sort of pictures that make me want to get something better than a 'pocket camera'.
