Great Egrets

For this week's Free Wallpaper we have a whole flock of Great Egrets. It was contributed by Steve from Out On The Prairie. This is another great photo! How does he do it? I've seen more than one of these birds together before, but never this many. Such a beautiful sight! Read on to find out how to put it on your desktop.

Straight from Steve - "The Great Egrets were resting while moving south. They were along the Des Moines River near Eddyville. They were very nervous of my approach, moving slightly away."

If you would like to see more of Steve's photos, and his excellent stories, you can find them at his blog, Out On The Prairie, and even more of his photos on his Flickr site. He writes fiction that is based on the lives of his family and friends. He interviewed them to get the essence of their experiences with nature and life on the prairie.

  1. He always has such wonderful wallpapers. Do the egrets have a better song than the blue herons?
