Picture of the Day - "Posing Egret" - Sept 6, 2016

Today we took a trip to Bouctouche, NB. To our surprise, as soon as we got there, we saw this guy fishing in the water, a Snowy Egret. This is the first time I've seen one in person, a lifer for me :) He didn't seem too bothered by us, which was surprising. In fact, while he was in the water walking around, he saw us and started coming towards us and then stood on this mound of grass. He looked as though he was posing for us as we were taking pictures :) I had to recompose to get him all in the photo :) More on this beautiful bird, coming in a future post.
