Egret and Marsh - Lin Frye
When C and I were in Charleston, we happened upon a flock of egrets flitting about the marshlands. They were smaller than the great whites, and I spent some time trying to capture them from the only bit of firm land we had -- unfortunately really too far away to do a photo justice with my simple 'point and snap' camera. Still, I wanted to try to capture a closer view of the marsh and the dazzling white of the egret. I didn't quite do justice to its reflection, but I really enjoyed playing with the colors and trying something different for me.
Rain continues .. grey, grey, grey. It's wonderfully warm though, and that feels terrific. I noticed that my winter daphne is just about in bloom -- and that plant has the most intoxicating scent for such tiny flowers. By next weekend, the fragrance should surround the entire front area of the property.
Hope your weekend is restive and wonderful!
