Pixel Peeper from Thoughts From My Corner Of the Couch and I are in a race to see which one of us will be the first one to photograph an egret on top of a cow. It started when she stated that her number one goal was to photograph one of those, and I jokingly told her that I was going to try to beat her to it.
So now we're having a good natured competition but, even though both of us have photographed egrets and other birds behind cows and under cows and around cows, we haven't even seen an egret on top of a cow since the beginning of The Contest. Because, it figures.
Well, this morning at 8:15 a.m., I received a call from Greg, which is unusual. When I answered the phone, he was all excited and said "Honey! Guess what I just saw?!" So I guessed a bear or a turkey. And he replied "No! Something even better!" I was clueless. So, of course, he said "I JUST SAW AN EGRET ON TOP OF A COW!". He had doubted that egrets even got on top of cows (whereas Pixel and I had seen them before) so it was an even big deal for him, lol.
Unfortunately, Pixel, he was driving to work on the 429 (toll road) so he couldn't make a U-turn to go back and take a picture for me. Arrrgh.
So I don't have have proof of my story. But I'm mighty tempted to kick those kittens off my chest right now, jump in my SUV while still in my PJs, and go hunt an egret on top of a cow on the 429!
