The Claw

Just looking at this picture, I want to imitate this bird:    hand mid-air....forming into a menacing claw.   I spotted this great egret atop a roof near New Pass.  He was frozen in this position for quite some time.  I'm really not sure what he was doing, but he was fascinating to watch.

A beautiful photo, I think he was spotting something.

It's a new yoga position and you have named it aptly!

It immediately made me think of something from the Karate Kid movies. Such a beautiful bird. Wecome back SRQ!

Very nice shot. And a lot more difficult to capture than one would imagine. Maybe he was drying the claw.

What a nice picture! I think he must have just been trying to rest his foot for awhile, but then again he might have seen you coming and decided to pose for your blog.

I think he's giving you the eye. ;-)

I think he believes Hitchcock is still alive.

I think he was flexing his wrist to relax it after taking all his photographs and typing up all his blog posts.
