Sometimes getting into position for a better angle of view requires getting down and dirty. I was really loving the light on the row of posts and the bird. To maximize their impact I needed to move to my left without scaring the egret. So, already sitting in the wet sand, I scooted a few inches at a time, on my backside until I felt I had a better composition. I also had a Grackle and a Great Egret try to get in the shot but since they seemed to detract from the picture, I waited until they left.
