Animal Wednesday Stand Back!

This guy (a very cautious egret) was blocking a path on the Bodega Bay Headlands and would not let us pass. Perhaps he/she was protecting babies we could not see. Nevertheless, we had to find another path to our destination. We were not going to mess with it.
Got up close and personal with this bird and it's shadow.
We found this guy in a tree. Actually there were four or five egrets in this tree. DH caught this one with his camera.
When you get done preening I hope you will enjoy the rest of your day too.
