Pulling up -- egret makes final approach

I guess I am fixated on landings this week. Oh, go ahead, you can agree. It's true.

This is another shot of a cattle egret pulling up and ready to thrust his feet out to catch a branch. This was shot at Audubon Park in New Orleans near the end of the nesting season, so you can be sure, this egret is bringing back a tasty meal for his/her over anxious young ones.
