Elegance on the Wing

Uploaded: June 29, 2004


An egret lifts off from the stage of a dolphin show at Sea World, Orlando, Florida. He was hoping for a free handout or to steal the stray fish during the show. I captured him just as he began a circling flight. Early afternoon, full-sun, handheld, Canon 100mm Macro Lens, autosettings
