    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.
