For the Snowy Egret, it was probably only a few moments of quiet and solitude... looking out over the water .For the Great Egret, it was "Move over fellow, this tree is mine!"
For me, it was the surprise I felt to see those BIG shiny black feet actually find a balancing grip on that twiggy little perch! He seemed to be so elated with himself and his victory that he felt the need to flap his wings in celebration.
He finally settles in to resume the duties of looking out upon the water, perhaps for brunch!
meanwhile on the other side of the lake:
"I'm telling you Evelyn, he had really big feet and he came right at me..."
(sorry, just had to...it fit so well! lol )
