Great egrets are fun to watch because of their beauty and sometime quirky behaviour . Thanks for posting a fine image .

Peaceful, pastoral scene above the water; impending doom below! I've taken some shots of egrets, but none have turned out this good. Well done. I've got a new-to-me lens and new-to-me camera that should help improve my next egret shots, if I don't screw things up.

Thanks so much for your nice comments Apet-Sure! Congratulations on your new gear and good luck with your quest for good egret shots. So much of it is finding the bird in a good setting and getting close enough for a good shot. Luckily, the egrets in my area are used to people out walking on the trails, that they don't get spooked easily.

Thanks Larry! I agree, the PLM is a solid performer for these kinds of shots.

There's a spot like that about an hour and a half away from me. Next time I get over that way, I'll be armed with a DA*60-250mm and a KP!

I have that lens as well. I bought the 55-300 PLM due to its compact size for travel and have been continuing to try it out in different situations. However, I love the IQ of the 60-250 and would never part with it.
