They are in breeding plumage now. Saw several nesting on Egret Island but too far away for photography. Finally captured one in flight today.

wow nice shots
very similar to the ones over here
Thank you Gale. We seem to be more of them breeding this year.

Nice captures of BIF, Phil! These are very good.
Thank you very much Peter.

wow very nice shots, Phil. Good work of the exposure.
Never have a chance to see these egrets in their breeding plumage.
Thank you Dao. They are very beautiful in breeding plumage.

Good captures, bro. I suppose these were takem while I went to get the soda!
Soda? I thought it's the call of nature.

Excellent shots, Phil!
Thank you very much Nick. Glad it did a fly by.

Stunning capture Phil
Thank you Gary. We're lucky with a short period of sunshine yesterday.

Nice shots Phil. We get cattle egrets inNew Hampshire occasionally. A very pretty bird.
Thanks Joseph. Yes, they're beautiful and there're quite a number in our usual birding spot, probably because of the cattle nearby.

Simply Outstanding Phil this is one bird I have not yet added to my photo collection, I hope my first is half as good as these are
Thanks Mike. It's my first of it in-flight.

And I would be very happy if my photos are 1/4 as good as yours. :smile:

Great shots Phil. You did really well capturing the egret in flight. I'm officially jealous.:redface:
Thank you very much Frank. I think it's easier to capture an egret in flight than a baseball in flight.
