Not Five Minutes From Home......

on our way to dinner last night, I stumbled upon this..........

Great Egret!!!!!
We were almost past the lake when I caught this, just out of the corner of my eye!!
It could have been a duck or swan, all I saw was just a speck of white!!!
We went back anyway (even though I was STARVING) and I prayed it was an Egret!!!!


She was beautiful........so graceful in flight!!!!!


I loved the reflection in this shot!!!!


The biggest, happiest surprise at....... 
Godfrey Lake in Brick,  New Jersey
I pass this lake every single time I leave my house,
You can bet that we will be stopping by here more often!!!!!



Please stop by and check out her amazing blog,
you will for sure want to follow along!!!

  19. These are great shots! I especially love the one with the reflection of the bird in the water... it makes me think a little of impressionism meets surrealism... Great job!
