I know that the Egret is simply sitting on ground with it's legs folded under it, but I can't help thinking of Tim Conway's Dorf character. :-)

Very nice, sharp image. I agree with your description. The other day I took a photo of an eagle who was sitting similarly...I thought he looked very strange!!

Great shots, and hilarious reference to Dorf - I hadn't thought about that in years...

Nice shot! The Great Egrets always look so clean. Maybe this one is just shortlegged:lol:

Thanks Imaginat, Jeff and VP for the compliments. This Egret was actually standing by some cat-tails when I first pulled up. He then slowly walked over a couple of yards and sat down. So, I know he has long legs. :lol:

Thanks Bob and Donna,
All those white feathers are certainly a challenge.
I appreciate the compliments.
