Great Egret Over A Swamp

When I first saw the egret coming towards us it looked to be an easy shot. She was in a lazy glide, no hurry at all.

Her destination was a small island cypress tree. However that changed quickly. Another egret was heading there too.

She flew right by and made a quick U-turn. With Egrets that’s all it takes. Behind the branches (where I couldn’t get a clean image) they chased and fought.

Such pretty birds, but this time of year they can be the worst out there.
