Nesting Egrets


This was quite a sight.  The photograph doesn't convey how special it is to see in person.
At dusk, snowy egrets swarm in nests all over a tree on a small island in
a residential Naples neighborhood.


The monthly theme for City Daily Photo bloggers on May 1 is "Squares."

I really enjoyed your mansion series Jack so impressive but prefer the cottages, much more manageable :) Super shot of the nesting birds, love catching big flocks together like that. Happy Easter Jack..

The nesting birds are so cool! And I really love the way the water reflects the tree trunk!

Always fun to watch nesting egrets. Fine reflection as well. This house might be closer to a mansion than a cottage.

What a treat! There was an island a bit larger than this in California where we could quietly row nearby and see nesting egrets. It's quite a sight!

Beautiful! The egrets look quite at home.

I've seen Herons nesting like this and I can appreciate how special it must have been to see these impressive birds nesting en masse.
