Looking back at Great Egrets

Looking back at Great Egrets

In April last year, I was a speaker/presenter at the Gulf States Camera Club Council Convention in Baton Rouge. I always enjoy seeing my friends down there and the hospitality they show. One of the highlights of the trip was a trip to Cazan Lake a couple of hours away with a friend who knows the lake incredibly well. It is a fairly restrictive lake to visit since it is on a working farm. You don’t get in their way! While there, we watched primarily the Great Egrets and Roseate Spoonbills on the nest. I captured a couple hundred images that day and were very pleased with the vast majority of them. This was one of my favorites though. I really like the expression on the youngster and the “punk” hairstyles!
