The Egret in the Grass

A very common scene on the East End.

When I was taking this photograph, a truck drove out and parked behind me. The man came out, talked to me for a little while, about how he had seen that I was taking photos of birds, and if I was interested he had this magazine that was all about animals and conservation. For a split second I thought he was trying to sell me something, but as it turns out he was a fisherman who just wanted to share something that was near to his heart. So, anonymous fisherman, if you’re out there, thank you.
