Egret In The Park

This beauty had the entire park to him or herself until we arrived. :) It was a rainy day again on Saturday and hubby and I took a drive to see what animals were out and about.  We found this beauty at Barber Park.  
Barber Park is an Orange County Park and is only about two miles from home.  It's a really nice park that's on Lake George.  I believe it's 66 acres in size.  It has something for everyone.  There's even two dog parks, one for large and one for smaller doggies. :)

The sun is shining here today, so I've got to get back outside. :)  Happy week to everyone!  xoxo


I was happily snapping in the rain. :)

He/she is a real beauty. The rain has really brought out the lush green of the park. It looks like a great place to spend time and see all the critters.
Enjoy your Sunday!
