Of Course There’s A Story

US state flags have to be designed around a ceremonial crest, many colors, and a Latin line  similiar to ‘E Pluribus Greedus”. In other words pompous.

South Carolina has a simple Palmetto Tree and Half Moon. As flags go it’s not bad.

Anyway, we were standing outside a cafe in town waiting to get breakfast. It’s tourist season so lines are just a fact.

This building and flag were across the street. I decided to get a photo of the design.

50 (+) images later the wind gave me a break.

Close Landing, Great Egret

I was completely unprepared for these. I don’t think I even noticed the Egret until almost on my head (slight exaggeration) .

In general I delete photographs where I clip wings or miss the angle.

I kept these because this bird missed the spot, the landing was not all that graceful.
