I spotted this Great Egret in a nearby pond this afternoon. I was happy to capture the moment it took flight from the water as well as when it flew overhead. It’s amazing how light and perspective can change the look and feel of a photograph. These photos were taken seconds apart :)

I found what I believe to be a Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly peacefully resting on a plant just above the forest floor. I made the discovery as I was hiking recently in an Ottawa County, Michigan wooded area. I’ve seen these fly by often, but rarely get the opportunity to approach one at rest.
