Great job Eric! Did you have a tripod set up waiting for the shot or was this more by chance? Either way, really great photo, I love how feathery the wing looks and surrounded by the perfect green!

We were at a wood stork and egret rookery in New Port Richey, Florida. All our shots were free hand through or over an 8' chain link fence. It is located just off Hwy. 19 in an old containment pond with a cypress grove in the one end. We got some very nice pics of both species. The photo of the egret preening was the best of a series of shots of him showing off.
Thanks for the comments. Thank You!
