I was photographing some small shorebirds when I noticed this group of Great Egrets foraging along the shoreline, coming towards me. I changed my position to get more working distance to photograph them with the lens I had on. Backing up even more as they got closer to get them all in and I shot a series of images through an opening in the bushes. This is the one I liked the best because they were lined up fairly well in the opening in the bushes. And I liked the upraised wings of the Egret in the foreground. I was using a 400mm with a 1.4x teleconverter @ f/8 which softened the bushes I was shooting through. It actually worked out better than I thought.
