Miles from nowhere

The things you see!! It was a strange day. Unusually for this area, there was a build up of clouds, a promise of rain and a threat of flooding. It had been very dry. We were driving around on roads that would be impassable after even a light sprinkle of rain, taking photos of the wildlife. Very few people live out here.

The sky was different. There was an air of expectation. Suddenly we stopped, and backed up, to take this photo. What was that hanging in the dead tree?

I’m still not sure.

An Egret?

I’m not sure about this one. I think it is an egret but it could be a heron. Apparently they are very similar.
