This Snowy Egret is likely a regular around this small pond. He was content for me to walk by as he surveyed they area from this cement embankment near the road.

Then I took one step too close and he lifted up onto a dead branch and proceeded to twist around for some personal grooming.

The branch hung out over the pond and I was able to move around the corner and get a couple different backgrounds as he posed one legged.

I wanted to get the nice green palm fronds or the flowering Crepe Myrtle that edged the pond but as it turns out I would have had to have my feet with the alligators to get those shots.
