Everywhere I go, I chase Egrets. Connecticut was no different.
There are lot's of "marshy" bodies of water in Connecticut,
therefore there are lot's of Egrets!
Here's the catch, they are very difficult to photograph
because they are so skittish.
In Connecticut, I find they are super skittish
and all their hangouts are well outside the scope of my lens.
But...I try anyway!
And then I shamefully share the pictures here.
I took 22 pictures of this guy, this is the best of the bunch!
I think I like the grass and the water in this picture
more then the Egret.
It appears my camera did also, as it would not cooperate
and focus on the bird, even though I had all my settings correct.
Let's move on.
Sorry...yes there is more.
Here I was hanging off a bridge...
well perhaps I was leaning over a bridge.
I did receive a few "beeps" from people passing by.
Peeps who drive fast and don't appreciate nature and photography...
well, they are missing a lot!!
44 pictures of this one, all but 2 will hit the recycle bin.
Which by the way, I don't recycle, I empty it
to put it out of it's misery!!
These images were taken on June 30,2013 during our trip to Mystic.
