Saturday Critters ~ 354 ~

 I have more Great Egret pictures to share from last weekend.
I saw so many Egrets...more than I have ever seen in one day in this area.
The Great Egret is a stately, pure white, heron like bird.
A mainly silent bird, large and conspicuous, long legs and a dagger like bill used for fishing.

My other two Egret posts from last weekend can be found here and here.
I felt those pictures were better than these.


Fishing...



nice catch!

"oh yes, I am happy too"




As I was photographing the Egret I heard a horn honking.
I knew it was unusual and the hubs said,
"look at this car"
it was probably the only thing that could get me away from the lake.
We took off, followed it and lucky for us, he stopped to talk to a neighbor.
I asked him if I could take a picture of the car and he said "sure"!
He seemed delighted!




Then he said, "I can do you one better, would you like to sit inside"?
ummmmm, YES!!!

What a thrill for me, I don't think I have ever been inside one of these.

  2. The egrets and that blue water make for beautiful photos! Herons are far more common around here. Beautiful car, too! My uncle has a collection of Model T's and I believe a Model A or two. Very nice of the owner to let you get behind the wheel!
