Found this recently in my uploads. It was so difficult to focus and track these awesome landings. Found their roosting place and they came in from all over and this one I like because of the artistic value and led to share.

It was dusk and what we witnessed was a bit surreal. Got a small clip of it and will attempt to link it in a workshop or here. video clip of habitat

Found a neat South Florida link where you click on the name of the bird and it gives you places you can spy these in the wild at different refuge centers. It is done by "Tropical Audubon Society". roosting places

Hello Brenda,
A nice frontal shot of this beautiful Great White Egret. From the POV it makes you feel like you were right up there in the air with it.
I checked out your video, but could only get the sounds of all the birds to play. It must have been incredible to witness this.

Quite an interesting capture with those rather slow camera settings for a bird picture in flight, Brenda. The partial view of the subject somehow looks apt in this picture.

Hello Brenda,
Really interesting portrait of an Egret in flight,nice details and clarity.TFS.

Hello brenda
