Landing snowy egret

  1. I took this image while looking for shorebirds last week. It was landing in a muddy patch of ground exposed by receding tides. I like it because of the light.

  2. Nice shot Allan, sweet light and nice feather detail.
     
  3. Very nice light on this one.
     
  4. Thanks Fred, Louie, and Gordon. This is not my usual type of shot - I cropped it more than I like. For that reason, i did not bother doing some of the things I would do on a less cropped shot (getting rid of some of the yellow grass) but I liked the light so I posted.
     
  5. Nice light and image Allan!
     
  6. Nice touch of light on a white bird. I like the crop dimensions. Any idea what caused the bubbles...a fleeing crocodile?
     
  7. Bugs, I can't think of anything else.
     
  8. Allan indeed this is nice light but I sure love the subject as well. Wish we had them here. Funny we do see the Great White Egrets here but not the Snowy egrets.
     
  9. I shoot so many in FL that I often just pass them by here. :)
