Cattle Egrets, Rain and Flowers

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is "Cattle Egrets Enjoying the Rain".  It is a delightful one minute video.  Enjoy!

For the last several days it has been quite humid here in Montreal but we got some lovely refreshing rain today!  The photos I am sharing are ones that I took on a nature park walk last week.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

  9. The egrets here look gloomy in the rain, hunched up in the trees.

  11. Seeing the egrets make me think of Florida. Such majestic birds. I wish we'd get some relief from our dry heat but according to the forecast it's not likely.

  16. Sure looks like he/she was enjoying that 'shower' ! Gorgeous series of blooms (we have a bush like that but the blooms are all finished). Likewise your previous couple of flower posts - wonderful colours.

    Hope you're enjoying the long weekend.
