Out in these marshes you see scenes unfolding all the time. The question; do you watch, follow with the camera, what are the chances of anything at all.
These guys do not like each other and the Egret wanted to land.
I focused and followed, shooting as things happened. It’s digital and I have plenty of cards.
The Egret was getting down lower, the Heron just watching.
The Egret changed his mind last minute. Yet the Great Blue was only half heartedly looking aggressive.
Most animals out here know it’s best to be careful. I remember a wildlife show from when I was young saying animals instinctively know getting even a little hurt can be deadly.
(strange how things stick with you. Other things… ‘poof’ gone in an instant.)
