Avian dance by a great egret

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

This is a series of ten photos of a great egret looking for food, at low tide, in the shallow waters of the Port of Gold Beach.

Like their cousins, the herons, to me these birds are most beautiful when they’re spreading their wings.

Watching this one I thought, several times, it was going to fly off. But all it was doing was “hopping” to a better spot where it thought it might find better prey. Captured by the camera, it looks like some kind of avian dance.
