Madeira Beach, FL (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: "During breeding season, the male Great Egret develops a green color around the eyes, and a beautiful wispy plume of feathers, which drape over its back and well past its tail. This gorgeous plumage nearly led to its demise in the early 1900s, as the feathers were highly sought as fashion accessories. In fact, the Audubon Society chose this bird in 1953 as its symbol, and it was formed in part to protect birds such as this one."

About icmoore


My name is Cathy and I first joined WU in 2005 for the great weather info and Dr. Master's blog and then later discovered the wonderful photography community here. I so enjoy seeing everyone's pictures and sharing some of mine. My husband of 42 years and I sold the house we had lived in for 25 years and raised our 2 sons in then downsized to a cottage on a barrier island on the west coast of FL. It's about a block away from the Gulf and we are living our dream now and praying that the big wind don't blow :)
