eeeeeegrets

A-Z Photo Challenge - The letter E

this little guy is an immature snowy Egret.  when he comes of age, those yellowish feet are very orange.  note the difference in him and the great Egret below...orange beak and black legs and feet.

these egrets are cute, Gina; when I saw the title of your entry, I wondered if your "e" got stuck on your keyboard until I realized you were participating in Martha's challenge

great pictures!

They are sure beautiful birds.  I also like the little e-turtle on the log in the first picture.   Linda in Washington state

Egrets are one of my favorite birds to photograph as well.  They are so prevalent in the wild in Mexico where we stay sometimes.   Very nice...:)  Maria
