    great image and mood. Fall is depression time, when most of them leave ;-)

    Lovely Daniel. It's nice to see some context, especially when this appealing too.
    Cheers,

    Thanks, everyone. I must admit that I really like this kind of gentile light, bright but overcast. Makes for very soft shadows and pastel like colors. I like it is black and white also:



    but in the end, I think I like the juxtaposition of the colorless bird in its colorful surroundings better.

    Oooo, that's a nice shot, Daniel. "Over here, we would call that a Great Egret. What do they call it "over there?"

    Actually, it is not a Great but a Little Egret; black bill and yellow feet, about half the size of a Great. Fun to watch them run through the water and shake their feet in the mud to scare up goodies.



    (sorry about the missed focus.)

    Usually we only see a few, but this time there was an equal number of both. In one place we visit, and that was in the hundreds, along with about 500 Spoonbills and God knows what else, geese, cormorants, ducks, all kinds of waders! Unfortunately, they were all over 1000 meters away and the air was "bad", so no chance of good pictures. Absolute madhouse!
    Here is a tiny sample of what was going on (600mm, lightly cropped!):



    Imagine another 6 frames to the right and to the left and you get something of an idea.

    Wow, that's quite a bunch!
    To my knowledge, we don't have the Little Egret; our Little Blue Heron in the SE, as juvenile, is white, and turns grey as an adult. Then, too, there is the Snowy Egret, which has the black bill and yellow feet, but it has some short plumes on the back of the head and longer ones on the chest. Odd that any bird has bright yellow feet --cue the music to "O, Them Golden Slippers."

    Little Egret is the European name for the Snowy Egret.
    The plumes on the back of the neck and chest are breeding season things, not sure if only on the males.
