Great Egret (Ardea alba)

Although this egret was photographed at San Francisco Bay, there are many in the area where I live, San Luis Obispo, in central California, half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. In face, where I often walk about two miles inland, they have taken to roosting in a large tree near the parking lot for the trail--Bob Jones Trail. It is quite a sight to see them when they all come in at sunset. They look like beautiful white tree ornaments arranged throughout the branches of the tree.
