13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Great Egret Walking

This egret was hanging out in one of the waterways at Blackwater wildlife refuge. When I spotted this egret it immediately started moving fast. I managed to capture it with the tall green grass as a backdrop before it came back out into the browner areas.
