Usually, the egrets prefer a distant solitude in the wetlands, staying safe from human touch.
At the Plum Island, not only that egrets were much closer, but one of them actually landed 20-30 feet from the place I was with my camera. Apparently, he spotted some fish in the area or simply liked me.
Nah, in a few minutes he realized how close I was, studied me for good five minutes and then took off to a better food place.
All of these events were patiently recorded in the attached photos.
Thank you, Mr. Egret!
