What's wrong with my white egret?

  1. Hi All! Shouldn't both legs be parallel in flight?

    Anthony,

    You may have caught him just as he prepared for flare-out, when they normally splay their legs out. At least I hope that's the case, and he isn't injured. :?

    Good capture in any case. :wink:

    Nice capture, Anthony! His legs do look to be in an unusual position for normal flight. Let's hope Frank's right and he's just getting ready to flare for landing.

    Anthony,

    At least it is flying. When was at our Eagle shooting location earlier in the year, I saw a GBH hit a TVA transmission line and nearly fall from the sky. It made me ill. He did recover though and fly on. Hopefully this guy (or gal) will be OK.

    Another nice shot BTW.

    Almost looks a bit dislocated.

    Hope it will repair ok.
    Nice image.
