Reddish Egret Fishing

Here are a few Reddish Egret shots from Bryan Beach, TX taken about 3 weeks ago.  It was a very windy day and slightly overcast.  Got there late as I took the long way around via Bolivar and San Luis Pass.  Nothing going on around there so I kept going west.  Glad that I did.  Lots of activity that day with a couple of Reddish Egrets dancing around.  Haven’t seen them since but got lucky that day.  It’s always cool to see how they fish with them raising their wings up in the air to scare the fish.  They are excellent fisherman and can fill up while other birds just stand around and watch.  Their eyes must be better than mine. 

Windy days can be a challenge but also rewarding.  You can see the wind blowing the water in the second shot and the egret leaning into the wind on the last two.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens
