Shortly after arriving at North Beach in Fort De Soto on Friday, we were met by a white morph Reddish Egret. As we were photographing it, a dark morph came by and began interacting with the white morph. They put on quite a display for each other, in beautiful breading plumage. I sat in awe of these birds for perhaps an hour, and here are a few of my photos from that time--I'm afraid the photos don't do justice to the beautiful sight we were able to experience that afternoon. These are the reasons why I never tire of photographing nature.
These are fabulous Scott. Reddish Egrets are among the most entertaining birds to watch. The tight portrait of the dark morph is spectacular.ReplyDelete
