Saturday, was the explosion of Egrets...everywhere we went, we saw Egrets.
A total of three at this lake, in Spring Lake, this one was really interested in posing for pictures!
I was surprised to see this Egret up on the grass. They are usually found in the water catching fish. Crossing over a bridge on the way home, I counted seven Egrets in the water below us. There was no shoulder or safe area to pull over, so no pictures of them...but don't think for one minute, I wasn't thinking about a safe way to pull it off.
The hubs said, "it's not happening".
Pictured here is a Great White Egret, seen in New Jersey only during the summer.
It is a stately, pure white, heron like bird that uses its dagger like bill to capture prey.
