A Great Egret, several Snowy Egrets, and a Little Blue Heron all took their places temporarily in a medium-sized Cypress Tree. They were very flighty. I took all but one of these pictures at a little pond near CR 466 in Sumter County, Florida at about 5:45 PM last night. I doubt these birds actually were intending to roost for the night, but were probably just resting a few moments. There are two ponds very close together in the area.
The picture of the Ibises was taken a few minutes later on last evening. It was taken on the shore of the little park lake, located just off of the Spanish Springs Square in The Villages, Florida. Please click on the thumbnail images to see a slightly larger version of that picture. Enjoy!
