This little guy was very grumpy, I think.

Also, I was trying out in flight photography, which is kind of fun. This is a snowy egret.

Those green herons always look grumpy! Nice capture of the Snowy Egret in flight! I'm impressed. I haven't gotten to that stage at all!

Beautiful and interesting photos Katherine. The one of snowy egret is super.

Nice pics of featherbutts Kat.
Agree that the Green Heron does look rather grumpy, but then they always do. We were fortunate that one came and spent half an hour in one of our trees. We don't live on the waterfront now but we're still fairly close, so maybe that was the reason why.
We also get lots of Blue Herons here.

Lovely.....despite the size pelicans really are amazing in flight...

Kat, my absolute favourite of all of them is the Pelican...LOOK at the feathers!!!

You can quit your day job now...you are not one bit shabby as a bird-in-flight-photographer!
