Dyke Marsh is a little retreat just south of Old Town. There’s a short walking path that leads out into the heart of the marsh, with nice views of the Potomac. In order to get this photo of the egret, I wandered off the path a bit. The backlighting was beautiful at this time of day and I hung out in this cove for a while, enjoying my time with this graceful creature.
