    Shot this GWH holding on tightly on a windy afternoon (a storm wwas was coming in from the ocean) at Bombay Hook. I had some time to take many pictures as he did not seem to want to move. As you can tell the wind was blowing left to right.

  2. Looks like this Egret is about to get blown off his perch.

    Very nice shot Geff. If I'm not mistaken, he's a Snowy Egret. I'll have to check my Sibley when I get home, but I believe that Snowys have yellow feet, and GWE's have black feet.

    Good capture in any case. :smile:
