Great Colorful Egret Takeoff

©2018 Paul Sikorski
I was walking through the woods along the perimeter of a salt marsh and happened to look through the trees and spotted this Great Egret (Ardea alba) standing in the water against this colorful background. Luckily, there was enough unobstructed space through the trees for a clear shot. I shot a few frames of the egret struting around and captured this image when it decided to takeoff.
