It was a slow morning at the Celery Farm Natural Area and then, with the early morning sun coming up, a Great Egret Flew in. I liked the reflections in the dark water, adding some interest to the usual Great Egret shots. Although the sun was coming from behind I exposed for the bright white wings and then opened up the shadows a little in Adobe Camera Raw. I like shooting Egrets with strong backlighting coming through the wings and interesting reflections in the water. These are from a series of about 30 to 40 images.

Sometimes it is fun to shoot a sequence showing action or wing positions. This Great Egret was flying into a tree which already had about 30 Egrets (Snowy, Little & Great) in it already. I was able to follow it in and show the sequence. It was moving fairly quickly and covered quite a bit of territory in this sequence. I used most of the images but bypassed a few that were to similar.
