Twin Great Egrets landing

I took a few minutes after work to dash out for some pictures before the bad weather comes in. I decided to go to a new spot (thank you Barb).

 

Plenty of egrets, but very hard to get to the waters edge. Every movement scared the birds and they would fly off. I was lucky to capture this pair as they were landing in my direction.

 

The light patterns under the wings are actually reflections off the water. I really like it when that happens.
