Zelia Frick photography specializes in creating an awareness of God's magnificent creation.
Birdwatching is an addictive pastime and the reward comes after searching for the right location, remaining quiet and waiting for that special glimpse. Capturing a picture of birds is an even more challenging goal but has become my passion. I love to observe birds, identify them and learn about their unique habits. I feel that I am successful only I get close enough to see into their eyes. Hopefully, you will enjoy this collection of pictures and be more aware of the many species of birds that surround you everyday.
The Great Egrets have long legs and a S-shaped neck. It is the largest of the white egrets and about the size of the great blue heron. They are found near water where they feed. They snap their prey by walking slowly or standing still waiting for the prey to come near them. Egrets usually eat fish killing them with a quick thrust of their sharp bill and swallowed their prey whole. They nest in trees and are monogamous. Both parents incubate their 3-4 eggs.
The Great White Egrets show off their snowy-white plumage (called aigretts). They raise and fan their showy feathers during courtship rituals. Thanks goodness the egrets are now under legal protection.
Seabrook and Kiawah Islands are located within an hour's drive south of Charleston, SC. Seabrook Island has more than three miles of sandy beaches to explore and two championship golf courses. Both islands have stunning vistas of forest, river, fairways, beach and marshlands. Activities at both islands include golf, bicycling, bird-watching, fishing, swimming, dining or just relaxing.
