egrets roosting on the river...this is their favorite tree but usually there is only one on it...

Saturday as i was getting ready to go to work...yes i worked on saturday...me moi...yes i did...anyway i was sitting on the backporch drinking my morning tea and what did i see but at least 23 egrets across the river on the Georgia side of the Savannah River.....here are the pictures...they were still there when i left for work around ten...amazing i have never seen anything like it...

my son said he thought they were fishing BUT i dont think they were ....i didnt see them fish once...and the river is deep there....

Lucky, lucky you! I think the first photo would make a great sketch. Great composition. Looks like you live in a wonderful place.
