It's A Beautiful Day!!

Yesterday, was a "10", the perfect day to do almost anything. Our choice, breakfast out, riding the bikes and chasing an Egret!! The sky was blue and the temperatures were cool. Fall is in the air and I could not be happier!! So here he is, my current best friend...


Meet Mr. Egret!! My newest obsession!!


I think he is regal and beautiful!!


Also know as a Great White Egret, it is easy to see why!!


They weigh in at about 2 pounds...


and have a wing span of 65 - 85 inches!!


They have a yellow beak and long black legs....


and black feet!!


A frog for lunch, he sure does know a "delicacy" when he sees it!!


This one is my favorite!! How about you guys, did you have a favorite??

If you think this is a lot of pictures, you should know that
I took 102 pictures of this guy and I am sharing 9 with all of you.
Now don't you feel lucky that you only had to look at 9 and not 102!! 

Its Autumn.....my favorite time of year!!
And today.....another "10"!!



Please stop by Tammy blog, you won't be disappointed!!

  3. Beautiful pictures. I am rather partial to the first picture, but all are wonderful. Autumn is my favorite season as well, but we have awhile until she arrives here. Ho hum! Enjoy your lovely day.

  15. You did get beautiful pictures. I am so glad you had such a awesome day.
    You said a skunk keeps spraying your house? That has to be the worse thing ever.

  19. Amazingly beautiful photos! We have egrets near our place, but I've never gotten pictures nearly as nice as yours.
    We're in the Outer Banks this weekend, and rode by a cottage today with a sign "No Egrets" on the front. Your post made me think of that!

  20. Debbie, these are awesome. I can't believe you caught it with a frog.
    102 that's funny I do that with Herons.

  22. A most glorious series of photos! You captured this stunning bird beautifully. If I had to pick favorites ... the outstretched wing images are absolutely stunning. Terrific lighting. The day, egret, your photographs and this blog post are all a perfect 10!

    My favourites are #1 and #2 - can't separate them! Beautiful Debbie.

  27. A favorite....hmmm....It's hard to choose. I like his regal pose in the first shot and the one with the frog is cool, but I think my favorite is the one where you can see those wonderful black feet.

    Nice job, Debbie!

    Thanks so much for sharing him at Behind the Camera. I love seeing you there.
