We also call this the ‘Ta Da’ moment.
The other day the Great Egrets were flying in, and out, of this dead tree continuously. For a while I was able to stand under a few big trees and catch multiple series.
I don’t know why but most times the big birds fly in a little low and climb upwards at the last moment. I assume it’s to slow down and land upright easier.
It makes for a great photographic action series if you catch it right and get the sequence in clear shots.
Shooting at a minimum of 10 images a second will catch most all the action. Which to me means I need to pay attention to what settings I’m using. I switch around at times to keep the noise from my shutter clicks to a minimum.
