A congregation of egrets at Wonson Cove early this morning. They are so elegant.
I caught this egret just as it was taking off. Lucky shot. To see more West Gloucester photos, click here. Thanks! ~Sharon
In the 19th and early part of the 20th century, some of the world’s egret species were endangered by relentless hunting, since hat makers in Europe and the United States demanded massive numbers of egret plumes and breeding birds were killed in locations all around the world.
