Splendid story telling and wonderful photos.
What a fantastic set of photos -- so sharp and clear.
Hello Gail, these are just amazing photos of the Snowy Egret. Well done, a great post. Happy Monday, have a great new week ahead!
Beautiful photographs of beautiful birds, Gail!
Good Monday morning, sweet Gail! Your pictures have blown me away this morning. They are so clear and vivid, my friend. And those feet look like the bird stepped in yellow paint :)Have a beautiful week. Hugs!
Gorgeous shots of the golden slippers!
Stunning images of these great birds, especially capturing them with the fish in its beak.
Jaw dropping shots!
You have the best egret photos I've ever seen. But of course you hear that all the time!
Very nice series showing how "real" fishermen do it! Wish I was half as successful.Great quality photographs, Gail! Kudos on your patience.
Such fantastic shots of the experts. Love the golden slippers.
Oh my goodness these are just priceless captures, and those little yellow slippers are just adorable. What a lovely creation indeed!
These are incredible, my friend! Last one, hands down, my favorite and just what I needed at the end of this Monday day :)
Fabulous series of the competent fisherman.
Well, he just had himself a nice buffet, didn't he?
Hi Gail, great captures of this incredible bird in the golden slippers. I love your turn of phrase.
Wow! I'm happy if I get a (bad) picture of one egret eating one fish. You got two kinds of egrets and gosh knows how many fish and every picture is perfect. Loved this. Your patience and talent combine to create amazing posts as always.
These are amazing images. I certainly hope all wildlife magazines know about you and your wonderful captures. Everyone deserves to see nature as you shoot it....
Wow Gail how cool are these images.
Such an informative post about the egrets, the close-ups of the Snowy Egret's golden slippers are fantastic, they look like eerie rubber gloves, and the black toenails are so funny. It's great to see your captures of the fish as they are caught and swallowed, and the red insides of the egret's mouth. The Great Egret had better get on the ball to catch up.
Once again, spectacular images!!! Those birds are wise to be so near the 'running' water where fish love to challenge themselves swimming upstream like they oftentimes do.My way of telling the snowy from the great egrets is a saying we had in Colorado "Don't eat yellow snow!" Hence: Yellow feet...yellow SNOWThanks Gail, for sharing this wonderful post by linking at I'd Rather B Birdin' this week.
Awesome action shots! I especially like the one with the fish midair between the upper and lower sides of the beak!
Such sharp captures! Very well taken.
man gail, these are just awesome, really awesome!!! i love this bird and don't see it too often here, i like golden slippers, i always called them yellow galoshes!!!!
You have topped yourself - again! Love your photography talent and wildlife combination.
Your egret photos are amazing! Wow!
What a gorgeous pair they are and you captured them perfectly...:)
What an amazing series of photos. The fish just in the air is fabulous. The yellow feet are good at clamping on to the rock. It is amazing how they can have reverse colours. I'm always learning in blogland.
Awesome shots! I never realized the Snowy Egret had yellow feet! I've learned something today!
Hi Gail.....I'm trying to catch up with all my reading. I've had the blogger blues lately. As always, these are some great photos. I admire your patience in gathering such interesting pictures. The way you share a series of photos, really tells the complete story of what you were viewing.. Interesting!! Stay cool....
those are awesome shots!
Yeah I Know I've been here before... Don't call the elder police yet . Just came from a different way this time and enjoyed the pictures as much the second time. Meant to tell you before I loved your title! Perfect!!
Oh my gosh those are just amazing photos.....wow! Which is your favorite?
They must have acidic cauldrons in those stomachs to handle all those scales and bone, huh. Love your shots.
Yellow feet and black beak versus black feet and yellow beak, what a tongue twister :), it's a lovely difference. Great captures, Gail, and you were just 15 feet from them? Sounds unbelievable! :)
oh my!excellent work, dear gail!have a great remainder of your weekend~xo
Truly amazing pictures of this heron. Sharp, bright and beautiful color. White is difficult to photograph but you have very nicely done. The photos with the fish as prey his enviable;-)
Don't think I responded to this earlier, however, I had to admire and comment on these great photos. Love the silvery fish in his beak.
I love egrets and thought of you last week when I saw a whole flock at low tide on the coast. I wished you were there with your awesome camera.
GREAT shots of your eating egret!!!
