There’s always a story, just some are more detailed than others.

This is a simple one.

On a good day I can find a place to stand and have everything come to me. That’s why it’s called a good day. This was one.

Several Egrets flew back and forth while I stayed in one spot.

I decided to keep them together in a single article since that’s how they came to me.

The first leap always impresses me. A jump off the tree, over the swamp, without a second thought.

At times there is no real rush to get airborne either. It depends on the breeze and direction.
