Great Egrets in Flight

On a recent trip to the rookery one some work was being done near a nesting area to remove some debris before the birds start their nests. A few Great Egrets treated us to an aerial show as they shifted around while work was in progress.

The flights provided a variety of shooting opportunities, with various wing poses and backgrounds as the circled around to return to their spots.

I am amazed by the ability of these huge birds to navigate through branches.
