Last week I ran into a solitary egret hanging around ocean rocks during low tide in Carmel Bay. These two shots, taken a minute apart, are of the same egret, although the angle and the lighting produce two different birds, in my opinion. So what, you ask? Well, I’ve noticed that egrets are intense, always aware of their surroundings and not happy about vacating their position, especially when they looking for food. It’s as if the egret is telling me to take my photos quickly and get out. I always do.
