|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I was looking at some images of David Roach on Bird Forum certainly worth a look. He has some brilliant stuff. Anyway I felt inspired to see if I had anything else squirreled away and I think this one is worthy of a post.|
In Australia, the breeding season of the Great Egret is normally October to December in the south and March to May in the north. This species breeds in colonies, and often in association with cormorants, ibises and other egrets. Both sexes construct the nest, which is a large platform of sticks, placed in a tree over the water. The previous years' nest may often be re-used. Both sexes also incubate the eggs and care for the two to six young (usually two or three). The eggs take almost a month to hatch and the young birds will leave the nest after a further 40 days.

An excellent capture of the Great Egret in flight. The white are exposed just right. Good sharpness and composition.

Very nice job on this one Lindsay,
Great exposure and stop action. Your bird stands out well against the OOF BG also. Nice detail, color, DOF, and I like the even POV/pose.
Well done & have a Great Weekend!
