Catching landings and landing catches

Caught couple of wetland landings in warm morning light at Mungalla Station, first with Eastern Great Egret (Ardea modesta) nearing touchdown ...


... then Royal Spoonbill (Platalea regia) glowing a catching pinky-white while coming down to join the crowd.


And in same session captured Intermediate Egret (Ardea intermedia) landing a tasty catch. Success is catching!
