This week's theme is ... Thankful
Gratitude is one of my favorite subjects. I've been keeping 'thankful lists' in my sidebar here since November & move
them to Happily Retired Gal at the beginning of each month
as I start a new one. After Monday's Amazing Rainbow ...
spending my birthday with my sister at the wetlands with

Beautiful shots...
Mine's up, too

Barb said...

What pretty birds! (My hair looks like that every morning. :P)

I have a Thankful post today too: http://blog.feefifoto.com/2009/02/photo-hunters-thankful.html. Please stop by and take a look, and enter my Fame giveaway while you're visiting. Thanks.

Stunning photos of these egrets. I only saw them from far when I was in Egypt in November. At least somebody told me they were egrets.

Awesome birds!

Love watching egrets stalk things at the water's edge. Something I didn't realize is that they not only eat fish, but small frogs and lizards too!
