This was a rare sighting of a Great Egret on St John in the USVI. He visited my East End beach several days in a row. I tracked him for hours, ultimately catching this lucky shot of the sun backlighting his wings and casting a shadow of his curved neck and body.
Location: East End, St. John, United States Virgin Islands
