Studly Egret Channeling John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever

Yesterday, our egret was channeling Isadora Duncan.

Today? John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

White suit and all.

What is this, an audition for Dancing With The Stars?

Whatever it is, file this post under silly humor.


Thanks to Paula and WordPress for the Thursday’s Special Non-Challenge Challenge. (I hope silly humor is occasionally allowed, because this egret is definitely a special bird, not to mention quite the dancer, too.)

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 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.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™
