Great White Egret hauling rowboat

This egret appears to be using all his strength and determination to haul this rowboat out of the tall grasses and into the water. He started out 5 lbs heavier and is working up quite a feathery sweat; it's this un-autumn-like heat and humidity. Good luck Mr. Great White! Enjoy a good, long cooling splash in the water.

Ms. Egret regrets her efforts regressed and she bets that you posted her efforts anyway.

Good eye, Frank. Very cute!

You can just see the pounds dropping off. I hope the egret got a nice fish dinner once out on the water.

They are so striking they always look like they know they are photo worthy. The pose and tease.

(guffaw) Well, that is funny. I can never get that close to the blue herons which haunt the Willamette. I love your humor.

Very interesting photo... the color, textures and lines... and the lovely lanky Egret.
