Great Egret nest at Trinity River Rookery

We stopped by the Trinity River Waterbird Rookery this morning just to see was was happening.  This was a pretty scene with a Great Egret looking over two little chicks in a tree in the middle of the lake finger and about sx feet above the water.  You can see how strong the wind was from the way the moms feathers are flowing.

The rookery is just at the descending foot of the I-10 Trinity River Bridge if your heading from Houston, though you have to exit the I-10 and circle under it and under the Trinity River Bridge to get back to it.

Frightless? Flight

What is it in us (or at least some of us) that makes us want to subject our bodies to forces of nature that can only be created by huge machines that torque the fabric of the night.  This is a scene from the South Texas State Fair in Beaumont.
