Painting of a Great Egret standing in the Narrows. The majestic Great Egret gets more dressed up during mating season. A patch of skin on its face turns neon green, and long plumes grow from its back. Those plumes nearly brought the great egret to extinction during the late 1800 when they were hunted for these aigrettes (long plumes). Saw this one while boating through the Narrows. Such a beautiful creature, so stately.
We are very happy with both of our paintings. They look lovely in our new home.
