We all have our favorite subjects and style of photography. Mine is birds in flight images. And some of the best for me is the Great Blue ‘leap of faith’.

A leap of faith is when these big birds just lean forward and propel themselves into the air. Now, adding to this is the fact directly below these rookeries are swamps, with many Alligators.

Above is the leap. Incredibly beautiful animals.

Suddenly, with no thought, they are flying.

    1. It’s the type I like to get. But this year a few of the nesting trees that are best for this, just empty. Trees lost branches over the winter and less Herons. Unfortunately it might be a trend at this rookery.

      Great Egrets should be moving in very soon, maybe their nests will make up for it.
