Stunning Egret Channeling Isadora Duncan
Thanks to Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday prompt.
Thanks once again to Stewart Moncton for the Wild Bird Wednesday prompt.
Thanks to Ailsa for the Weekly Travel Theme: Fragrant. (Just out of frame to the left are a few blossoming bushes. I’m not sure if the egret can smell how fragrant they are – I certainly could from the kayak – but they attract dragonflies, which in turn attract the egret and herons.)
Thanks to Debbie of Travel with Intent for her Look Up, Look Down Challenge. (The spiraling hawks definitely made me look up, then down.)
Thanks to the kind folks at NaBloPoMo for the National Blog Posting Month challenge this November.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

Many thanks, Donna, I’m glad you like this egret!
Beautiful shot! A very elegant bird.
I’m so glad you like this one, thanks for your kind comment!
Wow! This is Isadora to the max! Thank you. Happy Thanksgiving dancing with Isadora!
Thanks, I agree. If Isadora were to come back as a bird, it would be this egret. Thanks for your kind words and. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
Beautiful Egret photo.
Thanks for your kind compliment, Neil, glad you like this egret!
So lovely and so graceful. Definitely a Isadora contender.

Gorgeous, gorgeous-what stunning creatures they are!
I’m so glad you feel that way, many thanks for your kind words! Best, Babsje
Isadora Duncan never danced so well. This heron is giving her quite a challenge.
Oh … the heron wins as ID should have passed on the scarf. hahaha
p.s. Dolly on her music passion posted this on her sight. I’m so glad she did. I enjoyed viewing this one. GREAT PHOTO !!!!
I’m glad you like it, thanks for the wonderful comment!
Your very welcome ….
RU familiar with the biography of Isadora Duncan? Just curious??!!
Yes, I’m familiar with her wonderful yet ultimately tragic story. Thanks for asking. I do think if she were to come back, it would be as that egret.
They do have long legs … ~~~~ : – )
Thanks for answering the question.
You’re welcome. Actually, the configruation of the topmost wing was what first made me think of Isadora’s scarf billowing behind her as she danced,that and the position of the very long, graceful neck and head position.
That’s a top photo
Very pleased that you like thie Great Egre photo, many thanks for your kind words! Best, Babsje
