Great Egret

A great egret and a red-eared slider at Robert E. Lee Park, Maryland on September 1, 2015.

This great egret was hunting in the typical egret fashion of wading through the shallows just below the dam at Lake Roland in Robert E. Lee Park, Maryland.

Here it is surveying a small pool from atop a rock, and in the background a red-eared slider catches some sunshine.
