A bit of a baseball analogy to this fun scene. I was photographing an unusual gathering of birds at a local pond last Friday.
My main focus was on a beautiful great egret, a bird we only see here in Colorado briefly during migration and not in great numbers. Next to it was a great blue heron, creating a nice contrast. Suddenly, the great egret leapt into the air as a second great blue heron came in to join in the gathering, scaring off the big, white bird in the process.
Such a fun, rare thing to witness, making it well worth braving the cold temperatures and wind at the time.
