A Great Egret at MNSA

Tuesday, November 2, 2021,

I was on vacation from my regular job a week ago and finally managed to get out and take some photos. I enjoyed great weather for the most part and was out every single day. I visited several of my favorite haunts, including the Marine Nature Study Area in Oceanside, which is where I captured these two images. This is a Great Egret wading through the tall saltwater marsh grass in search of piscine delectables.  JK

  1. Boy, if that isn’t proof birds and dinosaurs are related, nothing is!. That creature looks like he belongs in a movie — and those prey creatures he’s seeking should be running like tiny people from Godzilla!

  2. Michele, luckily for all involved, Great Egrets rarely resort to breathing fire. 🙂
    And, yes, certain birds do evoke dinosaurs. Whenever I see a crow walking around, I’m always thinking that that’s how a T-Rex lumbered about. JK.

  3. Crows strike me as more refined, but a Great Egret and T-Rex, I can see that connection. 😉
