Great Egret Take-Off

Yesterday when I first got to the river, I was watching 3 great blue herons all the way on the other side and thinking "why cant they be on the mud flat that is so much closer to me"! And then out of no where the egret appearred!! This very same egret that was catching the big fish as seen in the photo below. I did clip the wings because I didnt realize he was too close to fit him all in there.

 

Last night my photostream also hit 80,000 views!!! Thank you all so much!! And would like to wish everyone from the US a Happy Memorial Day today! :)
