Great egret watching

Yesterday, I ventured out to take a few photos, not really planning where I would go. I decided to check out the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area for my first time. It’s just a few miles from home and I think about visiting it every time I drive by it.

I loved it but instantly regretted not taking longer lenses with me. These were taken with the 18-55mm kit lens, the longest “reach” I had with me. I thought I would end up doing street photography in Downtown Sacramento, not spending so much time watching birds. I ended up observing this great egret for ~45 minutes while it flew and hunted amongst some shallows, near the trail.
