I miss my little trips to Florida, when I can escape for a couple of a hours in fun places like alligator farms in Orlando or St. Augustine. Just knowing that I’m missing breeding season of the Great Egrets in these rookeries only make me miss it more.
Although I certainly have seen plenty of white of a different nature – snow. Snow, and more snow. But it is beginning to melt and perhaps spring and migration season is just around the corner.
At least I can go back and revisit my trips with all of the pictures I took last year. Perhaps a Knight in shining armor on a white steed may come and whisk me off to a new adventure.
I love that green eye
Isn’t that an amazing thing? It only shows during breeding season. Thanks Ali.
Beautiful..!! wow 🙂
You have no idea how much I’d like to go back there. Perhaps next year. Thanks Andy.
Wow back to you Victor. Thank you so very much.
That Egret is a real beauty, Emily. Looks like I’ll have moved back to Florida sometime before 4th of July!
Is that right? You’re going back to Florida? Where to? Moving is always such a pain.
Well, I’m going to visit north of Tampa and then decide for sure. I have a good friend that is looking for a place around Floral City, more or less. I won’t know until I get there, but I’ve been moving towards a minimalist lifestyle, so it won’t be as hard to move as it seems.
That sounds awesome. How I would love to simplify my life. Absolutely liberating. Good luck Robert.
Fabulous shots, Emily. The feather detail is magnificent. 🙂
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. These are truly beautiful birds aren’t they?
OH MY, these are so beautiful I cringed at the sight of the first one. Beautiful birds, and yes that green eye is striking. It’s surreal!
Photography is an awesome thing. I am already appreciating how much a 365 makes you document each day, even when you miss days. I’m so looking forward to this spring as well. I bet you get some amazing migratory birds there on the east coast.
Thanks for taking us back in time with you, it’s the next best thing to seeing them in person. I appreciate too that photography encourages us to look around us even more. You just know that there’s got to be something incredible in your own region as you admire the treasures of others. And what a great blessing the internet is that we can connect and share with each other in this way. I’m happy to have discovered you!
You are truly a special and unique person with a warm and generous heart. The project 365 will help you connect more with the world in ways you never imagined. It makes you look at things differently and search for things when you aren’t really looking.
Having you in my life really brings such joy and I thank you for being you. Hugs..Emily
Most definitely and she knows it, too. I assume it’s a she.
LOL !! The best part is that the boy makes the nest then tries to attract the girl to his house. She just gives him attitude. Love it!
Beautiful !!! I love Egrets ! Nice shots.
Thank you so much for your kind comment Susan. Truly appreciate you taking the time to visit and comment. Hope to see you back soon. Bella
Well, thanks for digging those out and sharing, what awesome photos!
I hope that your trip to the tropics is still on, cause this winter isn’t going to give up!
The Galapagos Trip is still on for the end of March. Alas, the Florida jaunts are no longer. Boo Hoo… 😦
I like it
I miss Florida too. The snow here gives way to mud. I miss the sun and the azaleas.
Oh I can only imagine !! The mud is crazy right now. Hope you really enjoyed this weekend. It’s been fantastic!
It certainly has been.
love the contrast
Thank you so much ! Soft and hard, white and black. 🙂
Your first capture is a stunner, love it! 🙂
Wow Donna ! Thank you so much!
