Great Egret

Great Egret, Ardea alba, taking wing at the Mission River Sanctuary. The Great Egrets are beautiful, graceful birds but they are a little photo shy and normally don't let you get close enough for a really great picture, even with the big, big lens!

Gorgeous. I don't know why, but I've always loved photos of birds. (I'm not a birder.) Herons and egrets are my favorites. If you're taking orders, go find a Great Blue Heron, the most beautiful bird in America.

Nice capture! I have trouble with flight shots but you got this one nicely.
