...only a Snowy Egret can make catching a fish look sexy.
The deep shadows cast from the trees on the wooded embankment softened the scene and made this beautiful bird even more gorgeous.
...slipping through the water, Snowy would lift one slender leg after another, showing off those lovely golden slippers.
...his fluffy plumes being tossed around in the breeze were beautiful. It's easy to see how Snowy Egret populations were decimated during the great millinery feather trade of the mid 1850s and early 1900s. Thank goodness women like Florence Merriam Bailey worked to curb this millinery fashion style, saving our Snowy Egrets from extinction.
...as I climbed back up the sandy little hill, Snowy was still fishing, walking the shallows patient and vigilant.
