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.

  1. Really like the egret gallery!

  2. Clear and white egret. Pretty.

  3. Fabulous images of the egret!

  4. Oh my! What fabulous birds!

  5. We love Egret! A remarkable gallery 🙂 There is a rookery of snowies near us, in the very urban Hutchinson River near City Island. Also their country cousins, in Westchester’s Marshlands Conservancy. We always enjoy seeing them — but never get photos remotely as beautiful as yours. Thanks!

    • Thanks for your kind words, and for telling me about your egret rookery – you’re lucky to have an urban rookery nearby. I have only seen 5 egrets here, and only one at the lake I frequent most often. I would be in heaven with an entire rookery! Thanks again for visiting and commenting. Best, Babsje

  6. Great idea to make a gallery of one bird!

  7. breathtaking shots, thanks so much for sharing!

  8. Hard for me to add anything, Babs, but I love the fine detail you got in those feathers. And as you and I both know, it is no small feat to get the exposure right when photographing those beautiful white creatures. You nailed that one.

    • Many thanks for your kind comment, Bob. I shot from a moving kayak on the water and so was pleased at how the egret photo worked out.

      • I’m curious. Do you shoot exclusively from your kayak,or do you sometimes get on ‘dry land’ so to speak.

        • Hi Bob, thanks for asking. 100% of the Egret photos were taken from while I was on the water. Of the 33 Great Blue Heron photos in that photo gallery, 3 were taken from the land, and 30 from the water. Its mostly just by “happy accident” that I photograph herons from land, and all of my Osprey photos are also taken from the water.

        • Hi Bob, just resending – I had it backwards in my first reply. 100% of the Egret photos were taken from while I was on the water.

  9. Wonderful egret gallery! We’re about to head down the the Puerto Vallarta area of MX where cattle egrets abound.

  10. These photos are stunning! I would like to know what lens you use 🙂 egrets are so elegant! We are always excited when a few land on our wetland during migration. I’m looking forward to following each other’s blogs! Jane

  11. I enjoyed your egret gallery. The wing detail is absolutely stunning, Babsje. 🙂

  12. Love getting to know the details of the different birds through your superb photography.

  13. Great collection Heron photo’s

    • Thank you, so glad you like this gallery! This year, I have not yet seen the Egret. Maybe he has moved to a different lake nearby. They are beautiful birds. Best, Babsje
