Snow White Birds

An Egret feeding frenzy.


On your mark, get set, go!


Water ballet!


A meal on the fly.


Gotcha little fish.




Incoming!





This White Pelican did not receive a warm welcome from the Egrets. 


I was happy to see him!

  8. Great shots Tammy! I hadn't thought of Florida as a winter wonderland before, but this whiteness begs to differ.

  14. Fantastic captures Tammy! My favourite is perversely the one where you can't see the Egrets head, but they are all amazing!

  17. Love the White Pelican...we have a huge amount of Brown Pelicans arrive in our Inner Harbour!!! I love the head shot of the egret also. And then I really like the flying shots. It is amazing how you get everything in focus all the time Tammy!

  19. What entertaining birds, so silly all bunched together with their long fragile wings, it's a surprise someone doesn't poke an eye out or snap a wing (says the mom!) Gorgeous shots Tammy. All those white feathers are reminding me of snow :)

  25. Great set of pictures - nice yellow socks!

    I saw a group of egrets fishing like this early this year - and they were joined by about 15 cormorants all team fishing as well. Remarkable really.
