Critters #129 - Great Egrets at The Palace of Fine Arts - September 25, 2010
I've been living in the San Francisco area for over thirty-three years now and I've been
visiting the Palace of Fine Arts for that long. It is a beautful structure that was built for
the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. After the exposition ended, most of the buildings
were demolished but a Palace Preservation League fought to save the beautiful building
and columns of the Palace. It is the scene of movies, weddings, and is a popular tourist

I have always seen duck and seagulls, in large numbers, at the Palace but, when I was
there on Tuesday with my friends who were visiting from Minnesota and Chicago, I was
so suprised to see egrets in the lagoon for the first time. They were so beautiful.
I am participating in Camera Critters - come join in the fun!
