Bird Photography Weekly-Snowy Egret

Snowy Egret

Holy Crap!  This water is COLD!

This picture always cracks me up.  I spied this Snowy Egret on the Texas coast in May so the water was not terribly cold, but by the look on its face, it seems to be thinking it.  Actually it was really windy and the surf was pretty rough that day.  You can see the foam and the force of the water as it surges around the bird’s legs.

To see other birds faces check out Bird Photography Weekly.

  1. It does look like the Egret is having an emotional response to the water. I hope it enjoyed its meal. Happy Holidays…..

  2. Wonderful photo–I can see why it cracks you up!

    I was going to do a Snowy Egret too, but that one is priceless 🙂 Good job!!! I have other birds to choose from 🙂

  5. You should have a caption contest for these photos! Great shot and…it probably was cold!

  7. Bev, that is a great picture. I love the body language. I think I would be doing the same thing.

  8. Me again – I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve tagged you for a meme. The background is in my blog post at http://wrenaissance.com/2008/12/my-top-5-birding-locations/ but instead of 5 places, I’m asking you to share the five greatest joys you find in nature.

    Thanks, and I hope you’ll play.

  9. Wonderful photo with lots of activity!

  10. Wonderful post, Bev! I love egrets, see ’em pretty regularly around here, and never get tired of them.

    So I’m curious, where in Texas were you? We’ve got a pretty long stretch of coast down here. 😉
