10). Egret in Calcasieu Swamp   Sam Houston Jones State Park, Louisiana (June 2001)

I'd driven through southern Louisiana many times before but I'd never camped at this wonderful park with the funny name.  The campsites here are right next to a swamp and the chorus of crickets and bull frogs that night really cracked me up.   While eating breakfast the next morning, I spotted an egret looking for his breakfast.  This is one of my 10 Favorite State Parks in the U.S.
