Egret In Flight. I think if there is one Bird that is Beautiful in flight it must be the Egret. The feathers and the huge wing span make this a contender for some awesome photographs. Two came to visit yesterday and seemed set on me taking some shots of them, it didn’t seem to matter to them as I moved closer they just flew off and landed again, so again I took some shots and again they took off and landed, it was a huge opportunity which I hope I have captured well enough to please everyone. I have had some fantastic feedback over the last couple of weeks and I must admit to being very proud of being able to show you some special images. Enjoy these beautiful Birds in flight antics as some are very funny indeed. I hope to keep your interest for a short while at least, as it won’t be long before I say goodbye to everyone…Regards….John
