Great Egret

SDP 3-9-16

We're taking a brief break from the sunset photos. I encountered this great egret recently in TierraVerde
 on the way to Ft. DeSoto.  He was standing on a bridge having a good stare. 

SDP 3-9-16a
And, with a view like this…who wouldn't want to enjoy a good stare?!  (I know I did.)  The egret is looking at Tampa Bay. Behind him (on the left side of the photo) is the Gulf of Mexico.  Beautiful area.  More pics to come from this photo shoot!  (By the way, this is the vicinity where the new SDP banner pic was taken.)
