Reddish Egret

I hadn't realised how rare Reddish Egret is in the US, so to find a more-or-less tame bird at Little Estero Lagoon didn't mean quite so much at the time - all the birds were tame. This bird, performing its skipping dancing fish-chasing routine, came too close at times, and in any event a series of stills cannot capture the crazy motions, the back and forth, the running, the pausing, the spearing. It was quite superb, but you needed to have been there really. These do not do the bird justice, but as stills they're ok.
