Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

A Great Egret in the Cypress Tree, a Tri-color Heron, an Anhinga, a juvenile White Ibis with a Little Blue Heron were all spotted at Freedom Pointe Lake and at the nearby Hacienda Golf Course pond here in The Villages, FL on a recent afternoon.  All are interesting birds!

The egrets were up in the trees due to it being cloudy with a very good chance of thunderstorms to happen (it did rain about a half-hour later).  These birds were very close to the multi-modal golf cart paths that skirt many ponds and lakes here.  It affords me a good chance to spot birds up close.  Handy for taking pictures!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

  1. The egret in the tree is an amazing photo! That belongs in that bird’s resume!
