This morning's photo is of a snowy egret.  In case you are interested in more information on them, there's a lovely site from a preservation society for Assateague Island that you might enjoy.  They are gorgeous birds.  If you ever have an opportunity, take a little pause and watch one wade through the shallows fishing.  Their patience and perseverence is both soothing and steadying…well, unless you are a little fish, I suppose…
