Great Egret photo

I did find time to photograph other birds at Santee Lakes beside the Wood Ducks, including this Great Egret.  Santee Lakes was a great spot for birds.  I had spent a fair amount of time in Borrego trying to get close to a Great Egret, and Double-crested Cormorants with limited success.  These birds, and many others were far more approachable at Santee. 

The huge Great Egret is a beautiful, graceful bird that often stood on the shoreline hunting.  I liked the colorful tree where this one was perched.  There were also a large number of similar looking, but much smaller Snowy Egrets.
