It took me a long time to get the egret as he was VERY FAR AWAY and I was on full zoom with no support other than my elbow on the back of the golf cart. I was hoping he would fly or at least show me an extended wing stretch. These are the best movements he would perform after preening for about half an hour. My inexpensive camera does a fine job with the zoom option, don't you think?
This was just a "fluff and stretch."
The wild yellow flowers on the edge of the swash have bloomed. I don't know what kind they are, but I DO know that the centers are picky and hard, not soft as I expected.
