Now that Spring is with us (although it’s been cold for a couple days), the rookery at Murphy Park in Taylor has become more alive with activity than ever. Egrets have been nesting, bringing new life to the planet. Throughout the year, we can see the ducks, cormorants, cattle egrets, herons, and geese, but this time of the year the skies are the electric domain of egrets … the cattle egrets, of course, but also Great Egrets and even a few Snowy Egrets (with black bills, not orange). These are a few photos taken there over the last few days. I can sit there on the lake’s shore, observing. When in the zone, someone can be standing right next to me, but the meditative state remains. That is good.
