I’m so lucky to have the beautiful Rainbow River practically in my backyard here in Dunnellon, Florida! I followed this Great Egret around the riverbank and got off several shots. It was hanging around because of the abundance of small fish in the shallow water. I think I got a little too close and it took off, but it gave me a chance to capture it in flight even though I didn’t have time to check the camera settings.
