About This Image

This tall palm tree stands about 50 feet tall. I watched the egret fly to it and perch there. Whenever I see one do that it looks so out of character as they don't seem like those long legs were made to perch like that!

The smaller cattle egret often perches in trees. But there is nothing more odd-looking than a large white egret in one - but it does happen.

What a neat shot,I didn't know they were tree birds.

I like how your mind works, Don! Actually, I was thinking he was hiding from my camera! I'm glad you enjoyed it! V

Cool capture Vicki. It's funny that he appears to be facing into the fronds, like a young bird that was told to go stand in the corner for being bad. I know, it's funny how my mind works :-) Great shot no matter how you look at it, Don

Thank you Mary and Carol. I almost missed this one as we were outside talking to a friend when I saw it flying in my peripheral vision. Luckily I had time to run inside and get my camera and it "obliged" by waiting for me to return before flying off!
