Here is an interesting behavior during the courtship of Egrets: … Greeting one another with the abbreviated version of the stretch, the pair will also bow to each other and preen one another’s feathers. The male may then present the female with a stick for the nest, a domestic gesture that symbolizes his acceptance of her as his mate. The female uses this stick to begin a new nest, or add to an old one….The male continues to bring nesting materials to the female until the nest is complete. Read more, click here.

  1. Beautiful Amy! Love to read about the grace of the egrets ! My aunt and uncle live in Texas as my uncle is a professor of American History at Texas A & M. His specialty is the 60s and also does current history as well. I loved that my aunt got all her lady friends together and went to the Women’s March in Austin all dressed up.

  4. Amy, marvelous captures of eloquent progeny of Mother Nature. Especially enjoyed the lines of the third egret; it’s flight is lovely in form and shape. We had a march in my small college town that was hundreds deep. We must continue the momentum to insure human rights and to protect the health of the planet.
