Reddish Egret BIF
Here are some flight shots of a Reddish Egret from Bolivar Flats. These are full frame frame shots without any cropping, which is rare for me on flight shots. I was moving from one sand bar to another to try to sneak up on some birds and was on my knees walking in the water when this egret flew over me. I didn’t have time to zoom out which worked for these shots but I ended up clipping some wings on some others.
