On a recent dawn, a Great egret took advantage of this lakeside platform to practice its morning ablutions by preening, stretching and posing in enough postures to satisfy my seemingly unquenchable photographic thirst.
Below is a sampling of the egret's antics. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
|A bird bigger than the bluebird nesting box|
|Starting the day with a laugh!|
|"Gotta itch! Gotta itch! Gotta itch-itch-itch-itch!"|
|"Aren't my feathers pretty?"|
|Big feet. The better to scratch itches with.|
Looking fine in sunshine
