And We Have Liftoff

This egret had just been wandering around the yard shaking all of the bushes for snakes and whatnot (without success), and decided to get camera shy just when I was ready to catch him knee-deep in our ivy bed. I'm sure that this is the same one that used to hang out every summer for several years just walking up and down Seventh Street feeding happily in all of our gardens. He/she (we called it Pat) hasn't been here for a couple of summers now. Welcome back Pat.

Seriously! I have seen them at "Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge" (45 min. from my house)through the binoculars. But this is just crazy!
