Snowy Egrets

Snowy Egrets fascinate me. I especially love their yellow feet. It's like they're all dressed up and wearing fancy shoes! We saw this fellow (or lady) not far from the duck below. There were two of them and they would flit away whenever we got too close.

It was a rather windy day, and once the egrets flew up above the protection of the ditch, their wispy feathers began to blow. It gives them an even "fancier" appearance -- only improved by those yellow feet!

That's a real "don't ruffle my feathers!" shot. :)

Yes, he's going of in a fluff. ;-)
