There are egrets and then there are "egrets".  This guy was ruffling his feathers and I was able to catch him at the precise moment.  I was actually photographing ducks when this egret landed about 10 feet away from me.  There was a lot of foliage behind him when some sunrays snuck through the foliage and lit him up.

 

   

The image above was shot with a cropped frame DSLR with 70-400mm zoom lens, on carbon fiber tripod.
