  7. What an utterly amazing shot! I’m thinking it has to be an egret about to launch. The detail is terrific. Where did you catch this one?

    1. Well thank you so much, Gunta! It is indeed an egret. I took it at a man-made lake made for water reclamation, called Lake Balboa. It’s smack in the middle of the suburbs. There are so many egrets and black crowned night herons, and geese and ducks and guys fishing from the edge, and canoes for rent. I always keep my camera on continuous shooting mode, hence my good fortune. Here is an earlier post of the same egret, I think.

  12. That is a great capture, and it can be too, that for an instant the egret is covering up, creating its own shade 🙂

    1. Or, it is about to perform a victory dance for catching an itty bitty fish. But it could be shade, now that you mention it — it’s quite hot out there.
