In late afternoon a great white egret was walking and posing in the Great Pond at Tualatin Hills Nature Park. The beauty of the egret was magnificent! Because the egret would often stop and pose in the still water, I had the chance to get many photos with the egret's reflection. In this pose the egret's shape was especially graceful, and the reflection was very clear. It was a magical moment in time to be so close to such a beautiful creature!
