This is the quickest stop I may have seen. I caught the delivery, and an immediate take off. No wait at all.
Above the Great Egret comes in with a nesting stick. It was non stop in flight shots while I was standing there.

However he did not wait around. Handed the stick and jumped right off the tree.
This time the bird went straight to my left, and kept going out of this rookery.

I think it was time for a break. Both Egrets had been working steady for most of the morning.
Actually I was glad. Standing in my spot I photographed the nesting and flights many times. I wanted to move on to see the Herons…but really, you just can’t walk away when all that is going on.
A friend and I joke we have too many ‘white bird’ photos. Then we both shoot a bunch more. He simply claims “but I don’t have one like that” LOL.
