Your Kung-Fu Is Good, But You Are No Match For My Great Egret Style!

Great Egret

F/5.6, 1/8000, ISO 1000.

This Great Egret showed off his crazy moves, and hit the road or I should say the sky.  I wanted to learn more by observing this amazing bird, but unfortunately my presence spooked him away and the lesson was over.  The way they walk and hunt, it is actually quite interesting. I would highly recommend next time you see one, to stick around for few minutes, and you maybe see something that you haven’t seen before.

Interesting Fact: Great Egrets fly slowly but powerfully: with just two wingbeats per second their cruising speed is around 25 miles an hour. ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/great_egret/lifehistory )
