It was fun while it lasted!

As per my usual Saturday morning routine, I was up early and out to one of my favorite places to take wildlife photos. I knew it was going to be a productive day when the first thing I saw when I arrived at my chosen site were 3 Great Egret! Of course as soon as I was within 100 yards of them they flew off.  I got my self blinded up and waited and waited….and waited. To my delight the Egret returned and brought a Great Blue Heron with them!  I’ll let my pictures tell the rest of the story…….
