Egret’s Departure

Egret’s Departure

My previous posted image showed a Red-winged Blackbird harassing a Great Egret.  This is the same egret after it decided it wasn’t going to take it anymore and flew off.  I took the liberty of enhancing the background a bit in Photoshop to make the bird pop a little more.  I like the naturally enhanced green patch between the eye and the bill when egrets are in their breeding plumage. Taken April 23, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.

VIEW LARGE for the best view!
