14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cattle Egret on the Wing

On my way back from seeing my family in Georgia, I stopped at the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge to check out the marshlands. While I was there, there were huge flocks of cattle egrets eating insects by the dirt roads. After a lot of failures, I caught one in flight as I passed it on the road.
