Snowy Prelude 9" x 12" acrylic $1200


As a storm approaches, a snowy egret lifts up into the wind above the reeds. Egrets seem to evoke a sense of peace and solitude which is in contrast to the dark clouds above. I saw this particular bird at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge where they are common visitors. They are a smaller active egret and are distinguishable by their yellow feet.
