The Great Egret is found in many North American wetlands. They were hunted nearly to extinction in the late 19th century, as their plumes were coveted by the fashion industry and greedy plume hunters. The Audubon Society and other conservation movements were brought forth as a result.
The Tillandsia is an air plant from the Bromeliad family.
These images were made in the Big Cypress Swamp of the Western Everglades.
Well captured. Did you visit Clyde Butcher’s Gallery?
Of course, I visit there every season.
I love the last shot!
Thanks Mrs. P!
They have even colonised the South of England. They are a kind of heron.
Yes, they are sometimes referred to as a white heron. Glad they’ve made it your way.
