Default Touch Of Yellow

Snowy Egret at Green Cay Wetlands again.

I am sure you are getting tired of these Egrets, I know I am. I have been out of commission for the last six weeks with a bum foot. Proper diagnosis has not been made yet, going for bone scan tomorrow.

All of these Egret shots have been of one bird from one day of shooting, July 13, 2010, One Fantastic Day of Shooting! I also captured the Roseate Spoonbill shots on that day.

Hope to get some new stuff soon.

So ..... just how many of these gorgeous shots are going to make it into the 'Ed - Hall of Fame' and onto your wall ?!

#1 is breathtaking ! Do these birds have a blue edge to their wings or is that shadow ? Whatever it is it really looks lovely.

EDIT : I see it's shadow. It definitely enhances the shots.

You are really getting the hang of it - thanks for sharing these! I am always fascinated to see the different wing positions of birds. Sometimes the birds look "natural" and elegant, sometimes I can't believe that it's aerodynamic (let alone "comfortable") for the bird. Oh well.

So your shots of flying egrets always have these two components for me - the (technical) flying part and the overall feeling - you know: nature, a bird, yadda yadda...

Having said all this, I like all 3 images from the technical aspect, but I don't like the really dark background for that white egret. Personal preferences I guess. The greenish water/tree structures in some other photos were better for my eyes.

Kind regards,
