Description

Every March I visit a rookery located improbably in the heart of Dallas to observe and photograph the Great Egrets and other water birds during their courtship and nesting activities. This Egret was high up in the trees, performing the beautiful ritual courtship movements as the wind lifted its beautiful plumes, which along with the green mask on its face, are also part of the mating and breeding season.
