Default Great Egret

On a golf course in Florida and the birds are 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.

Really nice series of shots. The Great Egret is always a challenge in the Florida sunshine to keep from blowing out the white feathers.
