Stephen,

How great when they cooperate ...

The third one is different ... I like the "pose"

Glad you caught it ... glad you shared it (and the others)

It was really interesting to watch that bird. There were 2 men net fishing in that "stream" along the side of the road catching small fish for bait. The bird would walk right up to them to get a fish. I thought he was going to eat out of their hands at one point. :lol:

The Great Egret is rather tolerant of humans as long as you don't approach head on to fast. This one might be migrating and stopped to refuel. If that's the case it will be even more tolerant.

Did you use a telephoto lens, Stephen....or were you that close to him? He (or she) seems to be quite photogenic...... :)

Thanks for sharing those awesome photos! That is one neat bird :!:

I am not sure which lens I used, although I think it was my 28-90mm. I was at lest within eight feet of him/her though. As Al pointed out, the bird was quite willing to let me get near, most likely expecting a snack. :)
