GREAT EGRET

This bird was hunting the roadside ditch, coming in my direction. I parked my SUV and waited. This image is slightly cropped.

He continued to hunt toward me. This is the entire sensor, about 40' distant.

White birds in the bright morning sun are not my favorite, but, I have never been closer to one of these large egrets. :-)

Drooling Swans.

A study has revealed that male saliva undergoes dramatic changes during small talk with attractive young swans. It suggests they almost start drooling during the briefest of flirtations with members of the opposite sex. And the more they try to impress, the more their saliva gives them away.

Ha ha ha...I love the title, and the story behind it, Ray! Not only that, but this photo of the drooling swans is really nicely done.

That's quite an undertaking for the tern. It's definitely a tasty meal and worth the effort. Outstanding shot, Shalu!!

Thank you very much, Mike! It promptly dropped its meal because it was simply too heavy. :lol: A gull would have gotten the job done, I am sure.
