Leaving The Flock, Egret

I wasn’t ready for this quick flight.

If there were any signals he was about to take off I missed them. At least I caught enough focus on two photographs.

In grass like this when you lose focus, for even a moment, it’s over. The swaying reeds grab and hold the lens. By the time you get control the whole thing is over.

 

An Egrets Secret Spot

Standing in the right spot, looking over to a small grass/reed island, you can see into an opening.

This Great Egret stays in there.

A white feather is tangled in the grass. At the time I shot this I thought it a nice touch.

I went back yesterday, stood in the same exact spot… found an Egret and a feather. It’s still there.

I hope the most recent photograph comes out as nice as this one.
