Last month I did a post on the white egrets that often hang out at a pond near where my sister lives. (Click here if you'd like to see those pictures.) While there were a fair number of egrets at the pond that day, I kept checking back to see if I could photograph a larger group. On this particular day, as you can see in the above photo, quite a crowd had gathered!
It was one of our colder days (27 F), and huddling together probably seemed like a good idea.
