“So Who Invited Him?!”
A while back one of our alligator pals suddenly surfaced and came gliding over to this surprised group of mixed egrets. I found it interesting and amusing that some of the birds left in a total panic, while others, especially the great egret in center, left, remained stoic throughout.
In reality, the gator just wanted to move over to another area and ended up paying no attention at all to the egrets.
Great Shot!!! Haven’t seen so many Egrets in years and, are they friends with the alligator??? or does he eventually get one….I hope not……
In a case like this the alligator is just floating around minding his own business and won’t bother the birds.
WHOAA…one of these days that lurker will get a kick in the head from such a formidable egret (he’d probably just roll his eyes)! Knock it off with the surprise appearances ;)!
I wouldn’t want to get stick in the leg by an angry egret but Mr. Alligator probably would not even feel it.
The Great Egrets have no fear. 🙂 Super shots, Phil. 🙂
Some of those egrets think they are Batman out there. Thanks for looking Sylvia!
There’s a reason for that panic. Mr. A just shows up everywhere, doesn’t he?! Really nice photo, and great “habits” capture! 🙂
He really does show up everywhere mostly because he thinks he owns the place and in some ways he does. 🙂
Great title for your party shot. You have quite the collection of creatures over there.
We did have a great turn out for this party but of course it only takes one unruly guest to spoil everything.
Bellissimi scatti!! Forse gli aironi più grandi hanno percepito che non voleva far loro del male 🙂
Grazie Pat! 🙂
I like the quizzical look the egret is giving the alligator!
He does have a funny look on his face like he is trying to figure out what that big thing is. But I’m sure the egret has seen these guys before. 🙂
Had to look up the collective noun for egrets… what you have there is a “congregation”!!! And Mr A went and broke it up!
Poor Mr. A was not invited to this congregation and that just might put him in a bad mood which would not be good for anybody.
This is so funny 🙂 and also so beautiful shots. Thank you dear Phil, love, nia
Thank you Nia, I’m happy you liked these photos!
Okay I’ll like a gaitor shot seeing you have a few birds in these 😂
Ha ha ha!! Phil, you come up with the funniest comments! Excellent shots too!
