Snowy Egrets at the local lake

The local lake has been a great place for birding, but it's over-run by Canada Geese these days, and the population of snowy egrets has been shrinking. To make it worse, the water flow pattern has been altered, and the snowies no longer feed at their traditional haunts.

Armed with my new telephoto, I was determined to find a few snowies. I came upon a pair of them feeding 1/2 mile away from the old lunchroom.

Thanks, Hide. But I don't try to nail the exposure. I just set exposure compensation to underexpose, usually by -0.7 ev, and then adjust levels in post processing.
