Great Egret's flight

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Sonia Crespo

This photo was taken last year, during a boat trip on one of the canals of PN Tortuguero. When I saw it, at firt I thought (in spanish) "oh, sh**, it's blurred!!", but inmediately I liked it. The sensation of movement, the way the feathers look... makes the photo different than the others of the Great Egret I took. PN Tortuguero is a national park in the Limon Province, on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. It has 11 ecological habitats, from high rainforest to herbaceous marsh communities, with a large variety of biological diversity.

Location: Parque Nacional Tortuguero, Costa Rica
