A heavily cropped picture of an egret... They are very shy and one has to stay hidden and still for a long time for them to wander even this close.... Shot with a 60D and Tamron 150-600 at 600mm and F9.0.

The neck is very snake-like when they are walking towards you...
I feel your pain - stalking these birds is a pain. Very shy and they see you coming a LONG way off. The trick is to live in or visit areas where they are common, then you just run into them on occasion. I got some of my best shots pulled off the the road near a marsh.

Hey, they can't all be beauties...
I spotted this handsome devil after making a wrong turn on a very foggy morning in Albion, Ca.

Do you count Swans as 'birds' :) when it comes to 'bird photography'

I'm not really one for bird photography in general - but I can't resist a bit of swan action.
