I was focused on this Great Egret as he began to fly through the branches of a nesting area. There was no particular plan here, but when a big bird flies by I always go for the flight images. They could be interesting.
Suddenly another Egret, one sitting on a nest, jumped up making a racket. I was startled, the flying bird surprised, and I guess the one on the nest too.
Maybe she was sleeping. Whatever it was she was not happy with the one going by. Let him know it.
I bet next time he gives her a little more space.
