An adult breeding Cattle Egret, from my garden today...
Again, this very tree is its home...As a matter of fact, early in the morning, the entire tree is gives a very snowed out look, it's white, just filled with these birds...As the sun rises, all the birds take off, one by one only to return at dusk.

June 4 is Caroline's birthday and I'm going home to wish her..I do hope and pray that we'll see better birthdays in times to come.

As I've mentioned, this entire garden series of mine is a dedication to my sister, Caroline..

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Goldy,

One more superb catch! Nice bight and sharp shot! The golden feathers are shining in the breeding season for the egrate. Nice composition!


Bonjour Goldy !
Ton jadin me paraît être un endroit formidable, à en juger par toutes ces merveilleuses photos ! Là encore, cette aigrette est magnifique, j'adore sa pose, elle est si fière, perchée ainsi au sommet de l'arbre. Excellent composition, jolis détails, couleurs sobres et naturelles. Je souhaite également un joyeux anniversaire à ta sœur, et j'espère qu'elle va bien se rétablir.

Hi Goldy.
Simply charming creature and you have pictured it so artistically. Fine plumage and shape reproduction. Soft lighting is very pleasant and composition of the shot as well as its details are blameless. Bravo.

hello Goldy,
Missed this one which I like a lot. Interesting point of view and nice composition. Must be impressive to see the trees covered with these birds.
The tree seeems to be a figtree.
Have a nice evening
Kind regards

Hi Goldy,

The leaves are framing well the bird. The point of view is showing the details and colors of Cattle Egret. The picture is cleard and sharp. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Goldy,
what a garden! Very nicely approached well composed image, showing a surprisingly colourful egret from a most favourale point of view. I like the soft and gentle atmosphere in the dim light of dusk, a poetic image telling of loving feelings.
Thank you! With best regards,
