shake your tail feather

i had just told jan how i was trying to get a shot of the egret's tail feathers -- so wispy in the wind. but the egret kept an eye on me and kept moving his body, so i couldn't really get the shot i wanted. after he flew away, tho, we noticed that he left a tail feather behind.

 

i'd call that an excellent compromise.
