Great Egret Visits Backyard


Great Egret up close. An impressive large bird, Great Egrets are fairly common in Florida wetlands, but this is the first-ever backyard visit by one who inexplicably decided to take a break on top of a small long-leaf pine tree. A tip when filming birds in heavy cover like this - switch to manual focus with servo motor assist off -  total manual control or you might miss it. By its expression the Egret doesn't quite know what to make of the the creature below pointing a camera at it.
