Great shot!

How did you manage to get a shot at eye level though? Egrets tend to build their nests high in the trees.

This was shot at the Pinckney Wildlife Preserve on Hilton Head Island, SC.  There is a large rookery with small islands, heavily populated with Egrets, Herons, and Anhingas.  Many nests are within 20 or 30 yards of land and are near the waterline or in the trees, which only reach about 50ā€™ above the water.
