Great Egret Landing

Great Egret Landing

I was going through images from earlier in the year and found some that I forgot I had. Great Egrets are fun to photograph, especially on landing. You can get some interesting wing and leg positions as they flare for a landing. You just have to be careful in exposing for the whites, especially in bright sunlight.

Great Egret Landing Sequence

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.
