Launching into the wind, this Great Egret displays the full majesty of her wings…
And I’ve wondered more than once if the ancient Winged Victory sculpture ( aka the Nike of Samothrace) might have been inspired at least in part by a Great Egret.
Eglantine’s wings even describe a letter V—for Victory!
Am I blinded by my love for Eglantine the Great Egret? Or can you see a resemblance too? Let me know by posting a REPLY below, and I’d also be grateful for a LIKE!
