Great Egret Passing By

Taken in an old rice field, now a huge marsh.

Most Great Egrets are out here now rather than the swamps. Hunting is much easier.

It’s much easier to get in flight shots here since it’s an open flat marsh.

They still need to cooperate some though.

ACE Basin, South Carolina.

A Great Opportunity, Great Blue

On a typical winter day here you don’t know what you will see, or how the weather will hold out.

A little dull, but Herons were out in force this time.

This Heron went down the length of the dike, almost at eye level.

The Great Blue are one of my favorite birds to shoot in flight.

Amazing how long they are when stretched out in full flight.

Two Generations

Two Spoonbills, a first year young bird on the left, all fuzzy headed. A two or three year old on the right. His head is getting smooth.

Both birds were looking right at me for this shot, but the young one following the signals from the adult. Neither felt threatened so they continued to walk around near me.

None of them flew off, kind of casually strolled off down the marsh.
