Cattle Egret

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Phil K, Apr 28, 2007.

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

    original.

    Good captures, bro. I suppose these were takem while I went to get the soda!
     
  6. Excellent shots, Phil!
     
  7. Stunning capture Phil
     
  8. Nice shots Phil. We get cattle egrets inNew Hampshire occasionally. A very pretty bird.
     
  9. Thank you Gale. We seem to be more of them breeding this year.

    Thank you very much Peter.

    Thank you Dao. They are very beautiful in breeding plumage.
     
  10. Soda? I thought it's the call of nature.

    Thank you very much Nick. Glad it did a fly by.

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

    Thanks Joseph. Yes, they're beautiful and there're quite a number in our usual birding spot, probably because of the cattle nearby.
     
  11. 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

    Great shots Phil. You did really well capturing the egret in flight. I'm officially jealous.:redface:
     
  13. 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:

    Thank you very much Frank. I think it's easier to capture an egret in flight than a baseball in flight.
