[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Great Egret taking flight. From my kayak, afternoon at low tide, the water was almost like glass so shooting was supurb. I try to position myself so I can paddle at them, then when I am in range I put the paddle down and pick up my camera, I was suprized at how close this one let me get before he took flight.
