This day all the locals, birds and gators, were out and moving around.
I tracked this Great Egret because you never know what will make a good photograph. He was far enough to make a decent wider shot.
The bird pulled back a bit quick. I had expected a soft glide.
Ha ! What I didn’t see at the time was a very big ‘nose’ in the reeds.
Lucky, he did.
Note; I remember reading a photographer should always take a few extra shots in a series. You might miss unexpected drama. The context of the discussion was sports, getting the goal, but missing the celebration that followed. It holds true with wildlife too. If you manage to remember.
