The Great White (Egret) Way

Revisiting shots from my laptop that I had previously skipped over, I've retrieved a couple of additional shots of the Great White Egret (Ardea alba).

I like the first one for the sharpness of the foreground detail, combined with the blur of the background.  In an earlier posting of the Great White, the water was reflecting the blue sky.  In this one, you can see the actual greenish funk of a long-used rookery pond.

The following shot takes us into the tree tops, where an egret is coming in for a landing with some nest-building material in its beak.
