Egret - Hop, Skip and a Jump

This Egret was standing and he must have seen something move because he shot his head out and jumped forward. Caught this shot after his beak was coming back out of the water and half way through his jump.

Shot of a "Wild and Free" bird. Taken with a Canon Rebel XT and a Canon 70-200mm F4.0 L lens.
