Great Egret

This past weekend I was out and about running some errands, and looking for photo opportunities, when I noticed this great egret sitting in a pond, not too far from where I live.  I pulled over and by the time I got my camera out and put on my 70-300mm lens, he had flown from the pond to the trees across the way from where I was.  I figure I must have been about 100 yds if not farther away.  I'm not very good at estimating distances.  I took a number of pictures hoping to get something that would look decent.  I think this turned out ok.  It is cropped quite a bit, but still looks pretty sharp to me.  One never has a lens long enough!
