Little Egret

.
This first one isn’t a Little Egret…….it isn’t even a good picture, but, I just wanted to share it. It’s a couple of baby Common Terns, born on one of the local lakes. It’s a heavy crop; they were some distance away, but I just liked the way they stood……waiting and calling for mum.
.
Well, it made me go ‘awwwww’ ;)
.
Right, enough lol
Back on track. This is just a selection of Little Egrets, taken over a couple of days. Again, one of the local lakes played host to them, and this year they have successfully bred again.
One day, hopefully I’ll be able to get closer to them………..or maybe have a bigger lens. For now, though…………

Hope you enjoyed them.

  14. Crikey you have been busy, Iv'e not been on much lately due to Harry the lab being poorly. The baby terns though are great though sometimes the shots don't have to be perfect to appeal to the senses, capturing the moment is more important
