    Reddish the disco dancer. lol The snoweys dance around also. But the reddish is a wilder dancer that even the snowey. Quite comical to watch.

    Really good shot .

    Nice capture Jeff. What was your shooting set-up (cam / lens / settings / etc.)?
     
  6. Great shot, Jeff. They're supposed to be quite rare. I shot one here but didn't know what it was until Harry mentioned it. Kinda cool.
     
  7. This guy is a spaz for sure!

    Nice shot :)

    I wasn't sure from the earlier shot but from this guy's action I would say he's definitely a reddish egret.

    He's shootin pretty much the same as me
    300F4 + TC1.4 on a D70(soon to be upgraded :wink: )
    I keep telling him to post his settings ??
    On his behalf he's on dial up and takes quite awhile for him to post/view.

    the dancer egret can not hold a tap shoe to the reddish for speed and humor and he gets fish :Shocked: once you have seen one there is nothing like him ,your comment shows you have seen the dance ,this hobby does have some great moments

    thanks for the nice comment Kevin this is the only one I have found in the la area ---maybe up from san diego :confused: Harry is very good with the id thing but blues and reddish are hard to pick until the color shows or you see the size and the dance :Mysteriou they are very cool to shoot if you get close

    Jeff,

    You got a celebrity photo! This bird was mentioned on local TV today (KCET - "Life&Times").

    They were reporting on the ongoing restoration of the Bolsa Chica wetlands to the condition it was in 116 years ago. The woman being interviewed mentioned that hundreds of species have been sighted at the wetlands and that there had even been recent sightings of a reddish egret. It has to be this one.
