Default Florida birds in flight

Back on the golf course this year and the birds are still cooperating, ignoring me that is. A sequence of a Great Egret in flight and a Cormorant landing. To save a few $'s we go out in the afternoon to get twilight rates. It makes for nice lighting but a short window. I missed a part of 5 holes to get some shots so my score is better when I bring the camera. Hey 2 birds with one stone it can't get better than that.

Very nice, Hans. Looks like the camera focused on the feet of the bird in 2 & 3. Still, a good series. Much better than I could do. I suck at BIF
