If you follow this site, you know my feelings about photography as therapy, or meditation, or a little bit of both. Occasionally, I actually depress the shutter. The rookery at Taylor’s Murphy Park is among my favorite places to pursue a little serenity. At this time of the year, I’m not seeing many egrets, although there are a few. Mostly, they arrive in spring, staying through the summer to bring new avian life into the world. The birds mostly seen right now are cormorants. There is one Great Egret included. Maybe she decided she likes it here. These photos were taken last evening, with clouds rolling in. This post opens with one of the final shots taken, when night skies took over and the birds settled in for a fine Texas evening.
