This is a composite of three images of the same egret landing in wetlands and was taken at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. I always find it interesting to look at a series of photographs of animals to observe their behavior. Great white egrets are part of the heron family. They were nearly hunted to extinction because of their beautiful plumage around the end of the 19th century, but luckily have recovered. They can be found in marshes, wetlands.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
