Rubber Neck



I took these pictures of this great egret looking for a meal on a cloudy afternoon at the edge of Lake Ella. I am putting my blog on a break for awhile starting tomorrow. All is well, I just have some fun plans coming up and I need to get ready. See you soon!

Linking to my some of my favorite weekend memes as they become available: Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and The Bird D'Pot.
