Graceful in Flight by Virginia N. Fred

The White Egret took off and flew so gracefully, I was surprised to get a capture of him as his wings pushed the air behind them

    Great capture Gina. I think this guy was headed to NH to take a gander at the fall foliage. I spotted a White Egret here early this afternoon which is a rarity. We have manyGrey and Blue Herons, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a white onethis far north. Nice work! Len
