Great Egret huntingGreat Egret hunting – Nikon D200, handheld, f7.1, 1/1000, ISO 160, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 240mm, natural light, not baited

Just a simple Great Egret hunting in a quiet tidal lagoon today that takes me back to warmer memories spent with good friends on Florida’s Gulf Coast. There were four of us that morning photographing Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Reddish Egrets and Tricolored Herons at the north beach just enjoying each other’s company photographing the bounty of birds before us.

Quite a switch from the heavy snow-covered ground outside my window right now.
