After digging around in the woods just behind this swamp it was a fast trip to the nest. He had a prize, the perfect twig.
I know it was the perfect twig because of the how long the search was.
In this sequence you can see how the bird started out low and climbed as he flew past. I panned the shots following the flight and now notice how the tree tops moved out of the scene as the Egret gained height.
Each year I forget how much practice I need to get these in flight sequences. It all comes back to me around mid January when the Herons come back to pick nest locations.
Man, the first shots each year are so very bad LOL.
