Great White Egret

Spotted this beauty on the swamp this evening.

Egrets walk slowly, poised to attack minnows, frogs, or other life in the shallows of swamps and ponds.

Above, after the sun went behind a thundercloud, giving the whole swamp an eerie cast, the egret posed like some sort of swamp thing.

Then an unexpected breeze came along and ruffled the swamp thing.
