E is for Egret

SDP  2-13-13
Although birds of a feather, these egrets did not want to flock together last night at Sarasota Bay.   They silently strutted by, giving each another the cold shoulder.  This picture begs for a clever 'Far Side'-type caption.   How about:   'Esther stifled her annoyance.  She couldn't believe Edna dressed like her again.'      What caption would you suggest?

I'm linking to ABC Wednesday.  To see other takes on the letter E click here.

Wonderful 'e' and super photo. (My bird turned out to be an Egyptian Goose - if I had known I could have used it :)).

Nice work SRQ. How about:

Edna thought she could sneak through the grocery store unnoticed before her salon appointment, when Esther strutted by.

LOL, I love it! Perfect E capture and they really are lovely birds, especially the way you make them look here.

"Oh, go away. What do I care? Sure, her beak's a little bigger than mine, but can she do with it what I can do with mine?"

I've only seen egrets when abroad, and only solitary ones, beautiful photo. I can't top your 'Far Side' caption, too funny. I suspect Esther considers her plumage far superior, look at the luxurious length.

This is a beautiful shot. I can't top your caption, which reminds me yet again how much I miss Far Side. Thanks for the laugh.

Meghan said...

Wonderful shot! We have egrets here, but they don't have the lacy feathers yours do. Laughing over the caption!

Love this shot! How about "The fishing's better on the other side of the bay!"

"Givenchy promised me that no other egret would be wearing this dress this season. Where is my agent? My publicist?"

Kathy said...

I like Jack's comment!

Ah, go on now!
