Egret flying over the Neponset River

This egret had been standing in the marsh along the Dorchester side of the Neponset River, near the bridges, when either it realized there just wasn't anything to eat there or got tired of the small black birds that kept flying right over him, so it took off and didn't stop until it got all the way to the other side of the river.

OrientSee snaps a cool photo of a Great Egret flying by the Blue Line tracks in East Boston:

... These birds do sail before the breeze with the elegance of a clipper ship with all canvas aloft. To see a Great Egret in flight like this is to be humbled by our own stumble footed lack of grace.
