I came across this lovely egret in Law Park in Briarcliff Manor, NY. I didn’t really have the right camera/lens combination (just my Sony RX-100M with its 24-70mm equivalent lens) so I just had to make do. I wanted to get a shot of the bird in the air and I knew that if I approached it, it would eventually take off and fly to the other side of the pond. And this was exactly what it did. I was still quite a long way away and this is quite an extreme crop, but I like it anyway – particularly the reflection in the water.

I’ll have to go back with a longer lens to see if it turns up again.

Taken with a Sony RX-100M3.
