Yesterday evening I was shooting this great egret as it was flying across the salt marsh when suddenly a snowy egret flew right into my shot. The photo bomb by snowball was rude enough, but…making a mid air deposit as it flew by, turning his act into a real ‘bombing run’, was totally uncalled for!
I reckon he’s thinking “well that’s my opinion of YOU!”, Phil! 😀
Sadly I think you are right about that Lucy!
Probably just miffed that you chose the wrong subject to photograph.
Yeah these guy are often quite full of themselves. Maybe not as bad as the alligators but jeez everybody wants their screen time.
How very RUDE in every respect, Phil! Thanks for showing me the mid air ‘deposit’……I think. 😕
Ha ha “I think” is right Sylvia! This one is probably not for everyone I suspect. The odd thing is that I have a surprising amount of these types of shots. Humm…
Oh and look at the face on that egret. It’s like he is thinking… Dude, seriously?!?
Yes, a very disapproving look, just like mine. 😀
At least snowball had the decency to not fly directly over my head.
Well, we can always be thankful for small mercies, Phil. 🙂
You said it!
Fascinating. You are alive and at one with nature.
Greetings from Mathilda ☼
Vielen Dank für Ihre freundlichen Worte Mathilda und ich bin glücklich, Ihnen dieses Foto gefallen hat.
It’s truly amazing the things you have to do in the marsh to get on Phil’s blog!
What’s equally (and possibly disturbingly) amazing is the amount of these types of shots I seem to capture.
That must mean something, but what?!
Also one time I saw an alligator… uh, never mind. 😀
E’ come quando le persone si mettono all’improvviso davanti mentre stai scattando la foto 🙂
Ciò accade a volte! Ringraziamenti per lo sguardo Pat!
LOL! Did it hit you?! The other bird has an odd expression, if that is even possible. His limelight was stolen after all with a rude upstaging…. :0
Ha ha no, luckily he was not flying directly over my head at the time of the ‘action’. And yes that other egret has a look on his face like he is thinking… Dude, Seriously, Now?!
Showing his/her disapproval, perhaps 🙂 Great shot, Phil!
Maybe next time I’ll know better and concentrate more attention on the snowys since they seem to have their little tantrums. 😀
Yea, the message was there … 😀
I so agree, beyond rude. Maybe a little jealous?
Those snowys can be a bit on the flighty side. 🙂
This is a wonderful shot. And what a timing! 🙂
The snowy egret did it on purpose I think! Thanks for looking!
Heard through the Grand Strand beach vine that try outs were brutal. Perhaps Snowy was rejected by the dance team and was expressing his feelings?
Oh that would be typical of the snowys with their high strung behavior and attitudes.
Maybe they would have better luck flying up the coast a bit and into NC.
Although… I would miss their goofy antics. 🙂
Your photos have become a most welcome daily ritual! Always a pleasure to see your latest post 🙂 We love our birds at Sunset Beach, NC, so send them on up the coast. You can keep the gators. We have met our limit.
Beautiful shot and a catchy caption 🙂
Hey thanks very much, glad you enjoyed this!
Ahh Phil, you certainly do have your fun there in your swamp. Everyone trying to get your attention or have their picture taken.
Yeah we do try to have a good time out there and the action is starting to heat up along with the temps. Soon the alligators will be acting up trying to get more screen time.
Well! His mother didn’t bring him up very well! Great shot, though, Phil!
He was likely goofing off with his siblings and not paying attention when mom was giving lessons on manners. 🙂
Wonderful shot Phil.
Thank you for looking and commenting Jan.
