    Went out to the Merced NWR a few days ago, hoping to photograph a great sunset. That never happened but I got this Great Egret instead (through the open window)....

    Nice action shot!

    Very focused for how fast those birds can fly.

    That is a wonderful shot! I like how the white body contrasts with the brown grass, and how his beak seems to line up with the shoreline giving that constant line all the way across the frame. Props.
