The Great Egret usually nests and roosts in trees. Its nests are made of sticks. Although it is solitary, it can gather in numbers when its prey is abundant. It has length of over 3 ft, with a wingspan over 4 feet, but it weights under 2 lbs.
The Great Egret is the symbol of the National Audubon Society.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
