Reddish Egret in Goleta

I’ve managed to capture photos of the Reddish Egret nearly every day since I first saw it land at the UCSB Lagoon on wednesday afternoon.  I haven’t looked for it today but might head over to Goleta Beach a bit later.  Starting sometime late thursday or early friday, it moved to Goleta Slough and stopped appearing at the lagoon.  Although the viewing distance is greater at Goleta Beach, the background is much nicer.

    I love these photos of one of my favorite birds. Each one is a show-stopper.
