Great White Egret

I saw these Great White Egrets at Fermilab in Batavia, IL.

I find them such graceful birds and enjoy photographing them and just watching them wade, fish and fly.

To see additional Great White Egrets stop by The Shutterbug Eye or take a look at my Flickr photos for Egrets and other birds.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. nice pictures. wow you have talent. I like photography also. what sort of camera do you use?

  2. Thank you. These photos were taken with a Nikon D70 and a 200 mm lens. I really want a longer lens but this is working decent for me with birds like Egrets.

  3. These are very nice, you can tell it is a good camera just by how you can even see the reflection of the egret.

  4. Nice it's not enough for your work sister. Great Pictures. Love it!

  5. very nice composition. me I just use a point and shoot camera. hehe.

  6. Thanks, you can still get some good pictures with a point and click though for wild animals and birds a longer lense is preferable. But it was a point and click that got me started and some of my photos on this site and other places were taken with a higher end Kodak, not an SLR. That is what I started with and I still have and use that camera. :-)
