The Great Egret, and how he came by his name is obvious to me.
And here is the experiment part. While the Great Egrets were flying I kept firing off pictures in a series. They all came out nice and I hated to break it up by selecting one or two to show. So I got the idea of putting them all together using Windows Movie Maker. I then sped up the showing of each frame for one second only trying to give a sense of movement. The second part of the experiment was placing the video onto the blog directly from my computer through Blogger. All of my regular videos are sent to my YouTube account and then placed onto the blog from there. The quality is not as good if I enlarge the frame as I normally do, therefore it is in this small format as you see. I'll not do this again, but had to at least try it one time to satisfy my curiosity.
The stills are in two parts. The second one, the egret just could not get a stable footing onto the branches and eventually gave up and flew off trying for a different perch. Funny to watch in real life
