Great Egret
Photographer: Douglas George
Location: Easton, Maryland, USA
Story: 
On a hot summer morning I spotted this Great Egret fishing in a large pond on the outskirts of town. As I approached him, he saw me and immediately flew to the other side of the pond. I took the opportunity to catch this shot of his almost slow motion yet graceful landing on the other side.
