It’s difficult for me to shoot and compose when confronted with a huge amount of birds. It’s a different point of view, from the bird as the subject to numbers as a whole.

It’s not a common sight, these large gatherings, so I try to get as many images as possible with some kind of perspective. BTW, with the large number of Egrets included there is always a moment of hesitation on who actually is the primary subject.
Just to confuse things the group as a whole walked right into the shallows, with the morning glare. Lucky angle gave a decent B&W photograph.
