We found this beauty alongside the road’s turn-around at the end on Hoopers Island.
We couldn’t help being so close to each other. The Snowy Egret got nervous and quickly took flight.

All I got in the next shot was the back of his body dangling in the upper corner of my photo, spraying water into the air.

I missed the flight ops as he shot out of my car window’s range. We got out to stretch our legs, see what else there was to photograph. I saw the Snowy Egret circling back around giving me one more nice photo.
Snowy Egret “with something to say”
I think he wanted his spot back, which we obliged by moving on. 😊
