I’m setting a double reminder for myself today with this graphical posting. One, my love of the color blue has yet to diminish in any way, shape or form. Two, my EGRET BOOK is progressing nicely and any post where I get to talk a little about them (egrets) or post a photo/graphic helps keep me in line with crossing the finish line.
Here then is my ‘Ice-Blue Egret’, a bird which to my knowledge does not exist in nature, but does exist in a secret chamber of my imagination.
The actual white egret, with yellow beak and long, black legs- oh, and beautiful wide white plumage, does exist and not so long ago posed for me in the still waters belonging to one of San Francisco’s many ‘micro lakes’ in the Botanical Gardens to take a few shots. I realize now he may have just been preening his feathers; opening one wide enough to make us wing-less humans stop and stare and in my case, raise the camera (after stopping to stare!).
I do have a different version of this blue guy over at my FAA spot. It still falls under the header: GRAPHIC, but is truer in tone and color to the real thing, or egret, as it were…
