Oblivious

Little egret standing in a stream

This picture of a little egret (a fairly unusual visitor to this area) followed a long hunt up and down the stream for him. Every time we got close, he flew away. Quite happy to have children, walkers and dogs run past him, as soon as he saw a camera he took off - obviously camera-shy! This was taken from further up-stream as he was looking for dinner. He was oblivious to me with the camera, hence the name of this picture. I love how the reflections of the trees in the stream add some colour to the shot.
