An Egret in a Tree?

Ahhhh, yup... it's an Egret in a tree alright.  I can't say I've ever seen an Egret in a tree before....

Even looking a second time.. it's still an Egret in a tree!  Amazing!

The Pond has been deadly quiet.  Some days if I didn't see the Moorhens and the turtle I wouldn't have seen any animals at all ! I hope the "winter" isn't birdless, geez.

Back from the Epcot Food and Wine Festival and got to see the lovely Egret. I usually have crows hanging around, though there a lot of cardinals, wrens, red tailed hawks, blue jays and little brown birds. Got back to G,ville and it is now pouring rain. Guess I was lucky that it didn't rain on me at the festival although it was in the 90's and Epcot is all concrete so it was on the warm side. Still managed to eat too much. So it is back to the workouts tomorrow. Vala3

I'm not sure but I think Egrets are part of the Heron family and I know Herons nest in trees. Doesn't he look magnificent there?

But am very worried about this Gator...

What a beautiful Egret. I forgot to tell you that I saw some Egrets in Maui. I tried to get a picture of one but I don't have the ability to zoom in far enough with my camera. I love your pictures!
