Snowy Egret at Del Rey Lagoon Park

Egretta thula
Playa Del Rey, California
August 10th, 2009

This photo was taken on one of my first photography excursions after I returned from Costa Rica this summer. Playa Del Rey is one of my favorite places to photograph local birds. Wandering around the lagoon one can observe a variety of ducks, geese and shore birds. A short walk to the jetty is a must, from here one can view pelicans, cormorants, and other sea birds. This August, I spent several mornings and evenings photographing birds in the lagoon and along the jetty.
