Egrets
 
Flying around in flocks of 50-60. From a distance thought they were just a flock of pigeons. Never seen so many behaving as a group.

Real nice series. I really like the first shot. I think moving the birds more to the right, adding space to left and removing a tad from the bottom. I really like the sky.

The last shot is great too. Real nice panning job.

Keep up the excellent work.

Thanks Robert, grateful for the comments.

Can certainly fix #1 as suggested.

Hi Bobo, nice series and the re-edit is the better of the two, well done

Thanks Rust.
Thanks John.

I re-visit this place every 5-6 months and this is the first time ever that there have been such huge numbers there. The flock is of 2 species which is also odd - Intermediate Egret and Little Egret.


Btw these pics are not representative of the size of the flock. Most were taken at under 200mm. At 70mm, they would be mere specks and higher then 150 or so they came too close to capture a reasonable number.

One more -
