Posing In The Shallows .......


~   Great White Egret  or Great White Heron     Coorong South Australia   ~
 
 
This beautiful Great Egret had no problems posing for a photo shoot
this way - that way most obliging.
 
I had the impression that Great Egrets were very flighty by nature and take to the air-waves
 the moment they sense movement .... but not this beautiful model

These are beautiful and elegant birds. They are common in Florida, too.

Two beautiful studies in elegance.They occur occasionally in England and I was lucky enough to find one a few months ago.

Great photos and I think you were lucky - I have difficulty getting close to them at all.

Very smart of you to locate one of the birds which enjoys having his photograph taken!

Most of his relatives are quite camera shy!

Very nice!

Joe said...

He seems as curious of you as you are of it Dianne. Perhaps he is wondering whether you are photographing his best side.

Massimo said...

very nice, normally they do not love to have people too close to them, very difficult to catch.. but mine are Italians Egret :-)

This guy definitely seems aware of you, but maybe feels no threat so decides to carry on with his elegant watching business. Gorgeous photos.

I have run across herons in the same area that are quite tame and others that are skittish. These are nice shots. Visiting from Wild Bird Wednesday. :)
