Great Egret

Lazy Hot Day

It was a hot afternoon at the swamp and now that nesting season is about over the Great Egrets that are still around don’t have much to do when they aren’t feeding.

Scratch in itch, if you can reach it with your beak.

Or go the traditional route, showing off a one-legged stance.

Itch satisfied let’s survey the swamp.

Or catch a few ZZZs.

These dead tree branches add nice interest to the photographs, but the sky was dull. I used some filters in Nik’s Color Efex Pro to add some depth to the background.
