Managed to get fairly close to one of the rare Great Egrets hunting whilst down at Ham Wall recently, little sod just wouldn't come out from the reed bed though, here's one of my better efforts.

Very much a quick in and out from me today I'm afraid.....Very busy and very tired, will hopefully catch up with everyone later.....

A cracking shot of this alert egret, it looks like he is very much aware of your presence!

I like it Ade must have been tricky to focus accurately with all the reeds, especially like the natural surrounding
