Brigantine Great Egret Fly-by Sunrise

If you get to Brigantine early in the morning before sunrise there is a good chance you will see large amounts of birds leaving their roosts from the night, flying across colorful skies. In the past I have seen everything from varieties of hawks & eagles, Night Herons, shore birds, but mostly I see Great Egrets in large numbers flying out, some in large groups. Also they fly a little slower, so in low light conditions, you have a better chance of getting images without motion blur in the early morning light. I like the dark shapes of the birds offset by the colorful skies which add a sense of drama to the shots.
