Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

I spotted this Great Egret at Schwartz Park at Paradise Lake in The Villages, Florida back in mid-June 2017.  The Great Egret immediately took off from the shoreline and flew across the lovely lake to the opposite shoreline.

These are such graceful big birds.  I think it is a joy to see them in flight!  By the way, we have had some significant amounts of rain which is refilling our local lakes and ponds.  The lakes here are pretty full now!  It is nice to finally see water under docks.

  1. It;s always a wonder when a big bird like that takes off! Nice captures!

    • Hi Montucky, The Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons both seem very graceful in flight. The large white egret seems so beautiful to watch when soaring. Have a great day tomorrow!
