Landing in Tree 2

 

  By January, egret babies are on their own and their larger parents are free to fly from tree to tree.  In fact, the larger egrets become quite active and can be a lot of fun to photograph. 

The image was taken with a 80-400 VR zoom, hand held using ISO 400 film. I have photographed a lot of egrets but this is the first time that I have captured the sheer strength of the bird.
