This morning, June 1, 2021, I went out to one of my usual spots; Sand Creek in northeast Denver. I had it in mind to try to practice capturing birds in flight using the tips that Melissa shares in a following lesson. I was blessed with more than a dozen snowy egret sightings. I've never had luck capturing a decent flight photo of these graceful birds, but I thought I would give it a try again today. In particular I kept in mind Melissa's suggestion to have the sun and wind behind me, and try to capture the bird as it was coming towards me. That's not easy! I didn't quite do that in this photo but I am happy to have been able to get an image of the egret's wings going downward. The photo certainly isn't as clear as I would like it to be. I have work to do on my settings. At first I was disappointed with the shadow that shows up on the egret's right wing, but then I thought that it was unusual and unique. So it's a keeper for me!
