A Living Lawn Ornament

This Great Egret was strolling around the front lawn of a neighbor of ours a few days ago.  It was the first time I have spotted a Great Egret on my street (we do have occasional flocks of White Ibis here though).  We live about a third of a mile from the little neighborhood lake, so the egret was not far from a normal area where one would expect to see such a bird walking around.

The Great Egret was likely hunting for a quick meal. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
