    Default Great Egret.

    I was happy when this individual flew by in front of some greenery. For a change, the sharpest image in the series was the one with the best head angle and wing position. I did not expect it to fly so close, therefore I needed to add a bit of canvas right and bottom.

    Canon 7DII + 500mm f/4 II + 1.4TC III, manual exposure, evaluative metering, 1/1600s., f/5.6, ISO 400, natural light, handheld, a few brighter areas in the BG toned down.

    Whites look great and I like the bird against that green background very much. I guess in a perfect world the back wing would be further down and not touching the head.

    Very nice Dan. The bird pops real well against the BG, almost painterly effect, which I like.

    Hi Dan, great exposure on the whites, and yes, nailng the full down stroke of the wings is always a bonus. Nicely separated from the BG too.

    Hey Artie, if so I do not know where, and it would not be a huge colony. These guys have only begun showing up more regularly up here during the past few years and are still considered an exciting find by most of the local photographers.
