Today the water was still standing in the parks from overnight rains when we decided to see what was around and about. We drove thru Middle Concho Park and detoured around several areas of soggy ground. I didn’t want to get stuck because Ann doesn’t like to get out and push. 🙂
Our highlight today was coming across a Snowy Egret. It was on a large tree limb that extended out over the water. On the same limb a Great Egret peered at the water. In the photo, you can see the vast difference in size. The little Snowy is about 24 inches in height compared to the 39 inches of the Great Egret. The Snowy is somewhat rare around here, not being seen every year.
Of course, I saw another irresistible opportunity to photograph another Great Blue Heron
