Snowys… At It Again
Earlier this week we had a group of snowy egrets fishing in the salt marsh during low tide. But of course snowys being snowys…they can not simply just fish together. Oh no, a significant amount of drama and acting out is always required.
They might all start out with the best of intentions to just catch some fish. But it doesn’t take long for someone to get fluffed and that means someone else needs to be chased. Typical snowys, it always has to be something.
Sounds like the snowys just like to keep it entertaining! Also, this reminds me of feeding time at the mini manse…
Oh yeah, back in the days when we had three cats it seemed like someone was always getting all fluffed over something.
Beautiful birds and images. I really like the group shots and variety of activities within each.
That’s a large aspect of the fun in it all, watching what the individuals are doing while at the same time observing the group as a whole. 🙂
Beautiful white plumage. They look like little angels, but we know that they’re anything but. 🙂
The almost non stop bickering can often be comical. But then two seconds later they act like nothing ever happened. 🙂
Love the fluffing. Our cats have a similar agenda!
We used to have three cats (but have only one now) and back in those days it would not be unusual for somebody to get all fluffed up. 🙂
Snowy egrets, so spectacular. Such an amazing image.
They are fun to watch and photograph and I’m glad you like seeing the pictures.
Just think – all the time wasted, when they could be fishing!
That’s what we always say, but what do we know?! 🙂
Beautiful birds, I love their haircuts!!! they all have mohawks….just kidding, great shots as usual, and beautiful nature there. Thanks Phil
They do look especially stylish when they fluff up! These birds are wacky. 🙂
These are stunning, love the flair of their feathers!
Glad you liked seeing the snowys!
I think they are my favorite big bird. I do like their grace and elegance. Beautiful, beautiful images. The power of your eagles are quite fetching too. Hard to take your eyes off of them.
I greatly appreciate your very kind comments about my photos Donna, thank you.
Love your descriptions of their behavior – so true!! LOL, beautiful but temperamental, for sure~
