Little Egret wingspread

When I get the itch to bird and can’t embark on an out of town sortie,  I go to nearby Coastal Lagoon to get my fix.

There, less than an hour drive from where I live, common water birds abound and I try to catch them in action to make the photos a bit more exciting.

This Little Egret obliged me on one such quickie birding.
