Great Eagret - Wings Up
Caught this Great Eagret at Anastasia State Park - St Augustine. He came along very fast and just caught him before he took off.

Back in the UK now with a lot of pictures to process so watch this space.

Great Egret: This large white heron has yellow eyes and a bill that is also yellow but appears orange when breeding, black legs and feet, and long feather plumes that extend from the back to beyond the tail during breeding season. Feeds on fish, frogs, insects, snakes and crayfish. It has a buoyant direct flight on steady wing beats. Sexes are similar in appearance, but males are slightly larger.
