Back when I was renting the 400mm lens, I got some great shows of the Snowy Egret at Farmington Bay.
I usually see them at the same spot on the left side of the road close to the entrance. I guess there are good pickings there. Like many of these summer pictures, you can see the shadow of swallows in the upper right corner.
I’ve been looking through some of my old pictures and I really miss seeing Great Egrets around with their long necks. Here’s the Snowy Egret vs. a Great Egret picture that I took in California a few months ago.
I got a great shot of the back of the Snowy Egret’s head when he was lurking in the cattails.
There was a place in Palo Alto where I saw dozens of them nesting in the trees once. I should really go back there.
