So nice to have an open shot of a Great Egret like this.
In most rookeries there is little unobstructed views. However in this spot there are several nesting Cypress trees in the open.
I just had a conversation today on how we need to accept the fact branches and leaves will be in the photographs. We do shoot in swamps after all.
This bird made a nice slow even approach with a ‘twig’ for the nest.
