I wonder if the limbs of the Spoonie Tree creek as a Great Egret works his way along them.
Knowing you can fly if needed probably gives some confidence, even if your perch is on its last legs.
The Great Egret found a satisfactory spot…
a little breeze ruffled his feathers as I dropped to a better angle for the background.

A great picture when he moves.
The spoonie tree is really on its last ‘legs’ 🙁
It is, Liz—I will not be surprised to see it completely fallen over at 🥲
So pretty against the fall colours!
I hope the tree hangs on.
Thanks, Belinda, and who knows, the tree may be more resilient than it looks!
