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. Sweet, I like it too.
  4. Very nice light on this one.
  5. 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.
  6. Nice light and image Allan!
  7. Nice touch of light on a white bird. I like the crop dimensions. Any idea what caused the bubbles...a fleeing crocodile?
  8. Bugs, I can't think of anything else.
  9. 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.
  10. I shoot so many in FL that I often just pass them by here. :)
