Default Great Egret Flight

Some flight shots from Wakodahatchee Wetlands last Friday. The last photo is not so good, out of focus, but comes with a story. This photo is full frame at 210mm and the Egret came right at me passing at shoulder level with one wing tip within two feet of my shoulder.


K5 Sigma 150-500mm f5-6.3 DG HSM

They're all great... but the second shot literally leaps off the page. Great work by you Ed. And that Sigma 150-500 keeps impressing me more each day.
