Being in the front of the boat I was able to get a clear shot of this Great Egret hunting in the swamp. I followed rule # 1 here. Take the shot, then get the setup.
We turned right as we closed with the large Cypress. I was expecting the Egret to walk away. He was in the ‘zone’ and stayed focused as we passed.
Ellen was able to get additional shots as I paddled by.
