Flying Egret

I revisited my spring photos for the Tagged F challenge and found this Great Egret in flight. This image was taken at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens in Charleston, South Carolina.

A walking path surrounds the extensive Audubon Swamp Garden, allowing for excellent views of the wildlife. On this day last spring we photographed the Great Egrets, a variety of herons, water birds, alligators, turtles and lizards without leaving the path or the boardwalk. It’s an amazing place to experience, especially in the spring, and I look forward to a return visit in March.



    • It’s a great place to photograph and is open to the public for a small entrance fee, so if you’re ever down in that area it’s well worth a visit. I met several other nature photographers when I was there who stopped in for the day to shoot as I did.

  1. Amazing capture!!! usually it is very difficult to photograph wild life. In similar situation you my like, sometimes, to use panning technique so you can bring to life some of the motion of the flight.

    • Thank you, Tina. Yes, I plan to return during spring break in a few weeks. I hope the egrets are still nesting at that point. I really enjoyed photographing them with all of the activity going on. Lots of territorial disputes and displays makes for fun photos!
