    - alexislai, CNN iReport producer

    I am a "Senior Judge" that travels throughout Texas as a "visiting judge" (kind of like a substitute teacher). In my spare time I photograph old courthouses where I preside. I noticed a large family of Egrets behind the new courthouse in San Marcos, Texas (Hays County) late last year. At the end of court one afternoon I quietly approached one standing in shallow water. I was able to get a few pictures of him before he sensed my presence and took off. At that point I fired off several pictures of this graceful and magnicent looking creature in flight. The back light and the dark background perfectly illuminated his wings.
