Snowy Egret Dancing On Air
- Title: Snowy Egret Dancing On Air
- State/Province/Region: Florida
- Country: United States
- Description: This was captured in the Ritch Grissom wetlands in Viera FL.
When we arrived early morning, there was an amazing number of egrets in and around one small area. They were coming in, taking off, and generally making for some pretty amazing photos.
This snowy was taking short little flights from spot to spot and gradually closing in our our position. I trained the glass on him and tracked him through the viewfinder as he glided towards us, hoping he’d make a cool landing. He finally started coming in for splashdown when something caught his attention for a second.
In the blink of an eye he shifted position mid air and looked straight towards me. My camera shoots 10 frames a second, but this moment was only captured on ONE FRAME!
Funny thing was, I didn’t even know I had it till I went back and checked out all the photos on the computer :)
