An immature GBH is trying to get time on the pond behind my home and the mature one doesn't like it. Caught them both in flight but couldn't get them both in the same shot. All taken with D2H, 70-200 VR, handheld.

But they don't mind having the Great Egret nearby:

Gordon, Bryan:

Thanks for the comments. Yes, Gordon, I'm getting close -- about 50-60 feet on the flight shots. But, they are big birds!

Don,

The GBH is about my favorite bird. We have plenty around here, but it is unusual if you can get close. We did have one that hung out at the local duck for a while, but we haven't seen him in about a month. Talk about letting you get close, we could get within 25 feet of that guy. I sure hope he comes back.

Anyway, these are nice shots. I like all of them, but I really like the flight shots. Let's see more.
