Great Egret Display

The Egret when on display is stunning. Getting an open shot when they dance is usually an issue. Here I had a pretty good view for the full dance.

Part of the dance is for the bird to stretch and bend multiple times to show off the ‘bridal’ feathers.

I never get tired of this ritual, even with the squabbles that go with it.
