Translucent Flight

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Sandy Gherardi

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
