About to Pounce

Pentax K10D
Huntington Beach, California
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
A Reddish Egret, rare for the southern California area, made an appearance at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Preserve in Orange County. They're known for their frenzied antics chasing after fish, and here it's trying to balance on a tree snag while going after something it has spotted in the water. Taken using the Sigma "Bigma" 50-500mm lens, ISO 400, f10, 1/1000 sec, EV -7 @ 420mm.
