Found this Reddish Egret hanging out close to the car while walking back from seeing the Peregrine Falcon per my last post. He walked along a sandbar and turned to check us out and then continued on his way.
It was later in the morning so the light was harsh but he still made a good photo op. Had to crank up the exposure compensation on the second shot to keep it from becoming a silhouette with the sun behind him.
