Great White Egret
Posted By: daacon, 03-07-2010, 08:45 AM

I am pretty sure this is a white heron - this fellow let me get pretty close. I just missed him snatching a bug from the grass. Never did get a good shot of the whole body though ... amateur haha

Fantastic and very sharp.

Great photos Dave. I like #1 as everyone else seems to agree but I also like #3.

Ninja skills come in handy when you use a 135 on them
Thanks Clicker - he was actually pretty focused on looking for bugs and let me get realy close without much Nija skills (it was Holidays and there were drinks involved haha)
