    Hi y'all,

    One of my favorite things to do in the Wetlands is just to observe the behavior of the snowy egret. They do put on the best show.

    It starts with the approach
    44802155-L.

    the landing
    44802136-L.

    the hunt starts
    44802166-L.

    searching
    44802130-L.

    prey spotted, notice the fish just a bit ahead of the egret
    44802146-L.

    the strike
    44802134-L.

    success
    44802144-L.

    and the hunt starts again

  2. One of my favorite things to do in the Cafe is just to observe the pictures of excellent wildlife photographers, like you :wink:. Thanks for sharing the Snowie-pics.
     
  3. Agree

    This series is just wonderful. How far from the bird would you say you were?

    Thank you very much frank.
     
  5. Excellent Harry. I found on most of my flight shots of the Egret I got a great looking set of legs and that's about it.

    Great series.
     
  6. It's shots like #5 from you that make you "The Master" in my book! Great shots, Harry!

    These are some of my favorite birds to watch they are so animated and you have captured them so well.
     
  10. A "captivating" series ! Really nice work too with exposure control, especially on the white feathers.

    Thanks Ben. My shots didn't get that "look" until I took RR's workshop.
