Last week many of you seemed to enjoy the photo of my fishing egret, so I thought I'd share with you another shot I got of the same egret doing a bit of aerial fishing. Was the egret successful? Yes, it was, but my camera battery died, and I didn't get a picture of its catch!

  10. That's gorgeous. Did you watch and wait to catch the right moment, or were you lucky enough to see the egret like this? My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/BIJkg

    1. I'd been watching it, Christine, when it began to fly, so I decided to see if I could capture a decent "in flight" shot. :-)

  11. Great photo. I am not good at action shots. I don't have a very good camera. That should be on my to-do list. GET A BETTER CAMERA!
    You always have wonderful photos.

    1. Thank you, Judy! I keep thinking that I'd like a camera upgrade, but the one I have now is smarter than I am, so I think I'll hold off on that purchase! LOL

  12. Too bad about the camera battery, but this is still an interesting picture.
