I don’t usually photograph birds because I don’t have the lenses for it, but on my drive around Black Point Wildlife Drive in Titusville, I couldn’t resist stopping for this great egret out hunting (I also saw a wood stork hunting, but it was too dark to photograph by then). I didn’t know that a bird could get its neck in this position.

Here’s another view of the same bird. Keep in mind these pictures were taken with an 18-55 mm kit lens and are heavily cropped. I wish I could get them a little sharper, but really the only way to fix this problem is to use a telephoto lens.
