High Key Great Egret. I had to manually focus this, as the camera could not find the focal point in that background.

Thanks MinoltaMad for the comment.

I agree that @Dena's egret is fantastic.

These Green Herons were perching under water lilies on the stems, just sitting there like statues. Normally they are very skittish, but these didn't mind me hanging around pointing a lens at them. I have not seen this behavior and could not find it in google pix either, but indeed they were fishing. Here is one with a minnow. I wish I had more with fish, but apparently it's not easy to food the minnows, takes a lot of patience for these Herons.

Today I was on a day trip to Sandy Hook.
Beautiful beach near New York. You can get there by fast ferry.
I came across a foraging flock of sanderlings.
These busy little birds are hard to catch.
That is why every sharp photo is a great joy.
So eight photos;)

@mariuszlo, those sanderlings are beautifully photographed, isolated against their background so they look almost 3D.
Well done.
