Great Egrets were gathering in the Mangroves and starting the morning feed. That was the target, big white birds.
I don’t know where it came from but he flew right down the middle of the open water. In the shot directly above you can see the reflection of an Egret we were watching.
He flew right in front of those Egrets, and me. The camera was up, focused, and ready. If I blew these images it was all on me.
Sometimes things work out.
