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.
Coming in for a landing with a squawk:
I am amazed by the ability of these huge birds to navigate through branches.
A beautiful blue sky with fluffy clouds completes a classic flying shot.
