The Elegant Egret
This beautiful creature is often known as a “common egret” but I think its other name is much more fitting: the great egret. Now I don’t claim to know much about egrets, so maybe relative to other egrets, this one isn’t so great, but if there’s an egret greater than this, I have yet to see one and would very much like to.
Either way, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bird (or any creature for that matter) that could move so gracefully and elegantly and look so calm and majestic while fleeing from the perceived threat of a photographer who was too keen and got too close 😳
Have you ever seen a more elegant creature?
