Great Egret on the Broward, by Harry Selsor

A Northeastern wind courtesy of Hurricane Cristobal brought a little respite from the high humidity and dog days of August weather pattern.

Tides were favorable for a morning excursion on my wavewalk so I headed out to check out my recently repaired lens. I went to the “Secret Hideout” on the Broward River and found the Great Egrets and some Tricolored Herons enjoying the morning. Got a few loud protests as I paddled my kayak by the tree.

PS –

Went back to the “hideout” this morning and found a pair of Roseate Spoonbills…they let me drift right under them and take few hundred photos before heading off for breakfast…the Great Egret also stayed a bit longer. When I returned to the dock area got a few of the Little Blue Herons also. Harry

    Thanks, Yes April, we do have gators, manatees, and this week I even saw to bottlenose dolphins in the river..The Broward River is a brackish river the flows into the Saint Johns in Jacksonville Fl. Harry

    Great pics Harry! I can’t think of a more relaxing way to spend a day. I went out today, left the rods at home, grabbed my camera and just floated down the river. The comfort of Wavewalk and a lazy river……what a combination.
